"This book is about Running Flower. It talked about her love of the forest, respect of her elders. Running Flower's mother was ill, and ran off to the other side of her village to get medicine to help her village. Running Flower was a brave young girl. The book talks about other symbols and important aspects of Native culture.

The Lady Slipper is Minnesota's state flower, so I think using this story would be a good application of why the Lady Slipper is important to Minnesota's history. Also, it is a great way to teach about Native American history and culture.

" I like the book it is fun way to learn about Michigan " said.

" They read this book to little M during the Minnesota unit at school. I loved, loved it. A lot to be learned and just a beautiful Native American story.But I think I'm going to wait until a little later. Pretty mature stuff and more could be gained at a later age. " said.

"Although this was a beautiful telling of a Native American folktale that explores the sacrifice that has led to the beautiful flower known as the Lady's Slipper there is some work that definitely needs to be done on the editing. The were too many periods missing at the end of the writing on pages and in some areas either the sentence was missing its end or the author changed her mind on how she wanted to word it but didn't clean-up afterwards thus leaving an ugly mess behind.

Otherwise the telling of the story was quick and full of beautiful details that will take the reader back into the forest where the Ojibwe live. As for the timing of the story I am not quite sure when it was suppose to take place but I did notice that by the details both in the illustrations as well as the writing that it had to be after European arrival on the continent thus it is a blend of cultures while still staying strictly Native American in its full telling.

Furthermore the illustrations were beautiful and greatly added to the telling of the story. I enjoyed the attention to the detail and how they helped to build up the characters while contributing also to the setting of the story.

A definite enjoyable read for those who enjoy flowers and/or Native American folktale if you can overlook the editorial problems.
