This Caldecott winner is on many of our library shelves already. It has beautiful illustrations and could be the basis of many art projects.

Reasons to remove this book:
The author acknowledges that it is a retelling but nowhere is there authentication from the community the story allegedly comes from. Also children would not be ridiculed for not knowing their fathers as children from traditional Pueblo culture are born to a large extended family, not a single unit.

A raw, heart-breaking, factual story of a 13 year old Native girl making bad choices and learning the consequences. She sees her friend murdered, is initiated into a gang and is involved in thefts, drugs, alcohol, sex and loss of self and dignity. Through it all she often thinks of her mother whose lifestyle is unstable yet there is love between them. Although true, this book is not for students until university but would be a good study in resilience and belonging.

Please weed out! Liak, a young Inuk girl who chooses to adopt an orphaned albino seal pup even though it is considered bad luck to her culture, eventually gets banished from her village. There are numerous cultural inaccuracies throughout the book and therefore not recommended.

Review:

Although premised as an Algonquin Indian Cinderella tale, this story is far from it. The character in the book is abused directly or indirectly by action or inaction from the father, sisters and villagers. Reference to the rainbow and stars in the book are in fact symbols of death to the Mi’Kmaq....

While the illustrations are beautiful, they represent Aboriginal people as alike and we do not see the diversity that exists in our communities both visually and culturally. The illustrations also give the impression that Aboriginal people are disappearing. This is not an appropriate message for any child, let alone the FNMI children in our classrooms.

The use of "Chief Seattle's" words are suspect in that there is no evidence that he gave the kind of speech that Jeffers has used in this book. This book was first published before there were Aboriginal content validation processes.

Review:

This book has all the characteristics of a book to weed out. It is condescending, incorrect and uses derogatory language. There are stereotypical images and often Aboriginal people are treated as exhibitions. Take it off the shelf!
