Kindergarten-Grade 2-In this story from the Crow people, Thunderbird takes a young man to her nest to save her chicks from a hungry lake monster. Although the story is very simple, the telling flows naturally, and is exciting enough to involve children. The brightly colored illustrations are almost childlike, and are reminiscent of the traditional paintings done by Plains Indians on animal hides. Archival photographs and factual information appear in a short section following the story. Unfortunately, part of this useful information is printed on the back endpapers. A good selection to add to Native folklore collections. Young listeners or readers will find [this] lighthearted [story] with colorful, full-page illustrations both easy to understand and to enjoy. 26 illustrations
