This a good book to use as a classroom resource to teach about the first Americans. It features the Sioux, Hopi, and Seminole tribes. It also features regions such as the Northwest Coast, Southwest, Plains, and Woodlands. It is an interesting book with colorful illustrations. It is appropriate for early grades. ( )

The Very First Americans gives the story of the Americans who took place, even before Columbus did. Tribes such as Sioux and Hopi. This books gives details as to how they lived their lives, what they were eating, what a day to day basis would look like for them. It gives information as to how lifestyles were back then, without all the tools society has now. ( )

My child loves this book. She studies the pictures, memorizes the text, and asks for more information. Although I'm grateful she loves books, this favorite of hers is frustrating me.

I was happy to give her a picture book with a focus beyond the Old Wild West "Indians" that so often show up in children's media. Yet I consider The Very First Americans an unsatisfactory introduction to early native tribes within the current borders of the United States of America.

The illustrations are lovely and have inspired searches through US Library of Congress records for photographs and videos to see more of the historical crafts, hairstyles, and dances of featured tribes, such as the Chinook, Hopi, and Seminole.

My frustration is from details in the text.

Fact Checks:

The first humans on the continents probably did not all come from a frozen North.

"But when Columbus landed in America in 1492," says the author, "he thought he was in the Indies. So he called the people he met 'Indians.' The name stuck." What that description implies is that Columbus arrived in North America, made a reasonable mistake, then as a new American himself (what the book is about) introduced the native Americans to the rest of the world by a name that must have been reasonable enough to use forever. The truth is that a willfully ignorant Italian and his supporters in Europe helped stick a confusing term to a large number of people for 600 years. The book's explanation for the use of "Indians" with no direct ties to India is misleading.

Christopher Columbus landed in the Americas, not in the "America" as it's referred to today. Where he had been is further south than what's pictured on the page, the same showing the first humans here, which focuses on a migration that happened tens of thousands of years prior. Columbus also didn't so much as meet the people in Central America as force himself (and his men) on them.

The page about Chief Massasoit is from the perspective of the Pilgrims and how he helped them "get settled in their new land". While it's factually correct from that perspective, I expect a book about native tribes to share the perspective of the Wampanoag when the people from England negotiated for their land.

These details are especially important with this year marking the 400 anniversary of the Plymouth landing. Next month, Americans will also be celebrating Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples' Day. I will be looking for other books to present to my child to recognize these events. ( )

This book mentions several tribes who lived in the various places of America (i.e. Northwest, Southwest, Woodland, Plains). The book describes what life was like and how the Native Americans lived. INFORMATIONAL ( )

This books provides information about what American was like long ago. It talks about how people first came here (before Columbus) and the different names they called themselves. There are great illustrations that represent the Native Americans and animals as they were. ( )
