5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful teaching resource, 29 July 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brother Eagle, Sister Sky: A Message from Chief Seattle (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
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.
