First Book Order of the School Year -- Shopping is so much fun!

Starting the new school year by ordering three books, from American Indians in Children's Literature: Top Ten Books Recommended for High School. The list, along with a top ten list for middle school and one for elementary school was created by Debbie Reese, a professor at UIUC's American Indian Studies program.

  1. Night Flying Woman: An Ojibway Narrative by Ignatia Broker
  2. Men on the Moon: Collected Short Stories by Simon J. Ortiz
  3. Blue Horses Rush In: Poems and Stories by Luci Tapahonso, which will be useful for the Sophomore's post-colonial poetry project, I think.
Was about to order Waterlily By Ella C. Deloria too, but found that it's available in full text at Google Books!

Shopping for books for our library is so much fun.
