I bought this book for my young and spiritually aware 4 year old thinking that I would read it with her when she is a little older. The illustrations are delightful and the text is so easy to understand that I've been reading it to her now. This is a special book with a vital message to us all. The sooner our children understand the message it carries, the better chance they have of improving our world. He says "The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth." I still have a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when I read it. If you can't buy it for a child, buy it for yourself - it's beautiful.

I used this book recently with a year three class. It followed an in-school drama performance of a story relating to Irish migration, and the subsequent frontier movement of the pioneers. The children were totally fascinated by the story and were able to take on board the fact, that; although based on truth and actual events, the words said to be spoken by Chief Seattle are open to question.
The paintings are beautiful, as is the poetic language. I intend to use this text again. It has potential across the curriculum, providing excellent Literacy opportunities as well as starting points for other areas such as; PSHE, Geography, History, RE, Music and Art.
This is a valuable resource. It is unfortunate that we will never know an 'absolute' version of Chief Seattle's speech but, Jeffers' simple interpretation makes his intention widely accessible, and can only serve to invoke greater interest in the tragedy of the Northwest Indian tribes.

should be on every child's bookshelf. It doesn't actually matter whether Chief Seatte ever really made his famous speech (there is some controversy over this point)., every child should know just how important our earth is to our well being. This book is a real treasure and teaches about our dependence on nature and how we are destroying it in a simple story with beautiful and evocative illustrations. I;ve read it to every class I've ever taught and it's never failed to induce emotion. It is, quite simply, a beautiful book with a real message,

My grandmother sent me this book when I was around seven, I'm now 24. I loved this book as a child and it remains to this day one of the books from my childhood i remember the most, right down to the pictures of people riding spotted ponies. It carries a beautiful message than has stayed with me to this day, I am now writing this review having had a sudden urge to buy it for my nephew.
