A Truly Wonderful Book March 30 2006
By Melissa Tenney - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Not long ago, Allen Sockabasin came to our school and spent the day with the children. He read the book in Passamaquoddy and English and shared stories of his life and culture with the children. He is a wonderful speaker and a great soul. Every child, from Kindergarten to Grade 8, was enthralled with Allen and with the book. What a truly beautiful story. I highly recommend this book to young and old alike. If you have the opportunity to have Allen visit, jump on it. It was a wonderful experience and most definitely buy this book.

Traditional Indian Story to Intrigue Your Child Sept. 28 2005
By Virginia Allain - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The story involves an infant falling off a sled as his Indian family migrates for the winter. Left behind, the boy is kept warm by the animals who come out of the forest one by one.

The author is quoted in the Maine Sunday Telegram, "I have a great interest in our language and in passing down the stories of our people." He learned the story from his mother. In the back of the book, all 23 of the animals are named in Passamaquoddy.

Inter Species Relationships Jan. 3 2011
By Lindsay N. Bowker - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My headstart friends love this book and it's wonderful illustrations by maine artist Rebekah Raye. Lends itself to acting out the story with dolls and stuffed animals as it is told. It's a magical tale of all the animals in the forest cooperating with each other to safe guard the little lost baby. Children readily accept and understand that and take in their stride the father's conversation with the animals as he expresses his thanks to each and every one. Also, an engaging way to introduce children to the history and values of native american peoples. Buy one for your local headstart and for your local children's librray as well as for all the little one's in your life.

Touching and Engaging! April 2 2013

Format: Hardcover
My 3.5yo wanted this read THREE times the first reading - enough said?! The illustrations are great, the story is lovely. I was afraid it would be a little traumatic for him seeing the baby in the cold without his family, but the baby is never depicted as truly suffering, just sad. And he loved the way the dad said thank you to each of the animals before returning to camp. How do books this good not win awards!? (For 3-5/6yo I'd say, but only for the older ones if they're acting it out as it's read, or if it's naptime or something.)
