Book Review: Tales of Little Bear and Little Buffalo by Roy Naquin

Little Bear is a boy whose curiosity is matched only by his daring. He and his cousin, Little Buffalo, grow up in a changing world where they balance tradition - like earning the right to their own dugout canoes - with the form of a new local schoolhouse. Little Bear's father is the tribal chief, but that doesn't stop Little Bear from getting into mischief. From acts of great bravery to gestures of deep compassion, Little Bear and Little Buffalo put themselves heart and soul into every moment of their lives, with contagious joy and spontaneous wisdom.

Roy Naquin's beautiful storytelling retains the clarity, cadence, and humor of these delightful family stories told to him by his father and grandfather. Tales of Little Bear and Little Buffalo is a treasure for children and adults alike.

This is a great book for kids.  Actually, it's a great book for adults, too.  The author, Roy Naquin, tells the reader stories that were told to him as a child.  They are written with a youthful enthusiasm that made me wish I was in on the adventures as well.  This book reminds me of the Little House on the Prairie books, except set in a later time period and revolving around boys.  But the stories are enjoyable for boys and girls of all ages!
