Ancestor Approved: Intertribal Stories for Kids, by Cynthia L. Smith


Overall summary - every elementary library should have this chapter book of short stories.

Each story is like a little jewel. Kids don't often read anthologies and this is such a great representation of the genre. I'm amazed at how the authors all managed to work together to interweave their stories even just a tiny bit so the reader could enjoy stitching together where the stories intersect. A fun little bonus.

This is a fantastic book that offers students a glimpse of Indigenous culture with contemporary characters.

I think most students will really respond and enjoy this book.

Favorite quote "Everybody's different. It's not on you to feel the same. It's on others to accept you because you're not."
