Kaya’s is prideful, particularly of her horse, Steps High, and leaves to race with a group of boys, leaving behind her little brothers. All of the children are punished for her transgression, and Kaya strives to act more humbly. Though she has a couple of minor setbacks, she shows her bravery when she rides her horse int [...]

    2. Summary: This text is a part of the American Girl series and accurately tells a fiction story based on the Nez Perce Native American culture. Kaya is a horse-loving young girl who tries to stay out of trouble.Evaluation: The author’s integrity is very high when it comes to the validity of the cultural aspect put into this book. The book could be read independently by higher grades. The illustrations are accurate even though they are scarce. The plot is engaging as well.Teaching Idea: This book [...]

    3. Kaya is the young girl who lives in an Indain Tribe called Nez Perce. The tribe settled in the Washington, Idaho and Oregan area. The year is 1764 and the story takes place with her parents , sibling, grandparents and tribe. The book is based on true facts and detailed information on the tribes traditions and language. Kaya loves riding horses and wants to be the best rider in her village. While Kaya was supposed to be watching her twin brothers, she boasts and decides to race one of her friends [...]

    4. Isobel and I read this aloud a few weeks ago. It might deserve five stars, but my disappointment in its being a little too old for Isobel has colored my view. There were enough unfamiliar terms that we got bogged down in the explaining of them and the excitement of the story was lost in translation. Kaya is supposed to be ten and Isobel is only five; I read the American Girl books when I was 8 or so and I loved all those period details. I'd rather hold off on reading the rest of the series until [...]

    5. Kaya has a new horse named Steps High. The horse is so beautiful and she can't help, but boast. One day, her boasting puts her and High Steps in danger.It was a nice book and I think it is a good way to get children interested in learning about the Nez Perce. Really nice illustrations too.

    6. 2.5*I've decided to re-read/read the American Girl series. At the age of 25, I'm sure it's been more than a decade since I've read any of them. I loved these books so much as a kid and Kaya is one of the dolls that I own.I didn't like this book as much as I did all those years ago, mostly because of how abrupt the ending was. (view spoiler)[Speaking Rain almost drowns, but is saved by Kaya and the book almost immediately ends. I just wanted to see Speaking Rain again (even briefly) to be assured [...]

    7. This book was not as successful for me as other American Girl books. I love that they branched into a wider variety of cultures, but I think the brevity of the book made it too difficult to describe the culture smoothly. Instead, it was pared down to episodes showing distinctions and research, without enough connection.

    8. Meet Kaya introduces Kaya, a young Nez Perce girl as she and her horse take part in a dangerous bareback race and she leaves her twin brothers unattended. The boys wander off and she faces her punishment with despair at first, then with solemn acceptance.

    9. This is a great read for an older elementary school or middle school student. You will learn more about the life of the Nez Perce people.My daughters are getting into the American Girl Doll world and brought this book home from the library, and I ended up reading it.

    10. Kaya is one of my most favorite American Girl series, and I have read a lot of them. I really enjoyed reading about the Native American life style and the illustrations, as with all of AG books, were great.

    11. LEARNING PATIENCE AND RESPONSIBILITY In this introductory book in the series we are introduced to Kaya--a young Nez Perce girl. Set in the Northwestern territory of colonial America in 1764, the story presents a tribe of Native Americans who--despite the erroneous French name--do not wear bones or jewelry in their nose. Kaya's father, a proud and skilled horseman, teaches his daughter to respect and train her part-Appaloosa, Steps High. This tribe prizes their horses, which were introduced to No [...]

    12. I Rarely ever get a book that is so Boring or Annoying that I can't Finish. This is a small book. I tried to skim through the words that way I was at least reading half of It but I almost fell asleep. 1st and Worst of All - The WhipwomanIn this book Kaya is supposed to be watching her Brothers but she asks her sister to so she can race horses. After the race she gets lost in the woods then remembers her brothers and sister and goes running to find them. Her aunt sees her and tells the whipwoman [...]

    13. Just reread this with my 2nd daughter. I loved this just as much the 2nd time through.________________________________I picked this book out to read with my 7-year-old as part of her history lesson. I didn't know that I was going to enjoy it so much. Kaya is spunky, and the action is never ending. The lessons aren't just about Native Americans and about history. As Kaya learns to be more mature, children reading it learn to be stronger and wiser.I thought it had some great character lessons for [...]

    14. Meet Kaya Janet Beeler ShawKaya was a Nez Perce Indian (otherwise known as the Native Americans) who was born in 1764. She is a courages, truthful and daring girl who aims to be wise like her grandmother and strong like her hero, the fearless warrior women named Swan Circling. Kaya wants to be a fine horse women and leader of them all when she is older. She proves her skills with her beloved appaloosa mare, Steps High in a daring horse race but leads to serious danger. She takes on the challenge [...]

    15. I will start off by saying that I love all of the American Girls books. With that being said, I love how they have gone above and beyond to tell the story of Kaya and the Nez Perce Native American tribes. I know personally in school I was only taught about the African Americans and the Caucasians. It wasn't until I went looking for a class on Native Americans in college did I learn much. I really liked the insight into the culture of the Nez Perce. They are one of the horse trading tribes of the [...]

    16. Kaya is a Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) girl living in 1764 with her father Toe-Ta, mother Eetsa, older sister Brown Deer and younger twin brothers Wing Feather and Sparrow. She also has a sister her family took in when her own family died, Speaking Rain, who is blind.Kaya has a new horse called Steps High and she longs to race her, but her father warns Kaya that Steps High is not ready to be raced. When a boy from her tribe challenges Kaya to a race, she can't back down after all her boasting and instea [...]

    17. Meet Kaya introduces us to a young Nez Perce girl and her family. Kaya is very adventurous and occasionally her adventures get herself and others in trouble. When her boastful pride of Steps High leaves her little brothers lost Kaya learns the hard way to do as she's told. She quickly earns a nickname that she hates and has to win everybody's trust back. I also was brought up with the tradition of giving older people all of your attention when they are talking to you and love that a strong femal [...]

    18. I listened to this as an audiobook. I was obsessed with all things American Girls when I was young and loved reading all the books. The Kaya doll and books came out just after I grew out of it and so I never read them. I watched some of The American Girls movies recently and was feeling really nostalgic. When I saw that these books were available as audio it was the perfect chance to make up for missed chance and experience the world of American Girls again. I'm so glad I did, because it didn't [...]

    19. Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsMeet Kaya is about a young girl who lives in 1764 as a Native American. She’s proud of her horse that she loves, and can’t wait to show everyone how great she is. However, things happen to Kaya and she ends up being made fun of. Now, she will try to figure out how to make that stop happening while continuing with her work and chores helping her family and friends. This book was really interesting. It was neat to read about this little girl, and her s [...]

    20. This is the first book in the series about Kaya, a Nez Perce Native American of 1764. The book has an excellent factual section about the Nez Perce Native Americans and the type of life they lived.This first book in the series about Kaya tells about her and her horse. Kaya is a young child and has to learn how to behave properly when she places the lives of two children in her care in danger by not properly paying attention to them. As a punishment, she and other children are given a whipping to [...]

    21. I've really enjoyed the American Girl books we've read so far. "Native Americans in the Colonial Period" was our topic, so this was a natural fit for a read along, and we enjoyed the first one so much that I'm now reading the third. I've learned more about the Nez Perce people, both gently through the text and through the little historical discussions at the book's end. While my kids love The Magic Tree House books, I tend to find them silly, so I don't enjoy reading them out loud. I thought Ame [...]

    22. Kaya is a lively Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) girl in 1764. She is boastful and impulsive, but through a near disaster involving her blind sister Speaking Rain, and through talking with her grandmother and her father, she learns to behave more appropriately. As with other American girl books, this book has a helpful essay at the end, with good pictures and a glossary of Nimiipuu terms. There are also small illustrations imbedded in the text of such things as baskets, baked camas, and so on. Better for c [...]

    23. I read this book for an elementary school reading program, and was very pleasantly surprised. The story centered around Kaya, a native American Indian girl, as she struggled to think of others first, instead of acting on her first impulses. The short story included historical facts, information about Indian culture, with a focus on caring for others. It was well written, and fast paced enough to stay interesting. I'd definitely recommend it to any child who wanted to learn a little more about gr [...]

    24. Genre: Multi-culturalAwards: noneGrade Level: K-2I would choose this book for a couple different reasons. One, the younger girls would be more into reading an American Girl book simply because it is such a large franchise. Two, I think the American Girl books do a great job of incorporating culture in a way that makes it easy for students to grasp. Meet Kaya is a great book to read when talking about Native Americans. I would have students make beaded bracelets and necklaces.

    25. Kaya and her family are Nimiipuu (Nez Perce Indians). Kaya loves her new horse Steps High, but more than once in this story Kaya gets put in her place when she boasts too much. She boasts about Steps High being the fastest horse to some fellow friends. She ends up racing for the first time with Steps High, but Steps High ends up getting spooked and Kaya almost gets bucked off. Kaya gets the nickname "Magpie" from this incident, and she does everything in her power to get rid of it.

    26. This is the last American Girl series Abby and I have left to read together. We may have saved the best for last . . . Kaya's storyline is engaging to say the least. Abby is really interested in Kaya as a character (me too--Kaya learns some hard lessons about obedience, pride, and selflessness.) but also very interested in what we will learn about Kaya's culture as a Nez Perce Indian girl. I am really excited to read the whole series.

    27. This review is from the perspective of a mother - Kaya's meet book is chock-full of descriptions of the life of the Nez Perce tribe she is raised among, and the cultural aspects of tribal life on the move. Kaya is impetuous and has difficulty accepting losing face or declining a dare, and want nothing more than to spend time on her own horse. It is clear that she is on the cusp of womanhood within her tribe, but she still has a lot to learn as she leaves childhood behind.

    28. While I enjoyed meeting Kaya, I can't help but wonder why this time period was chosen when really you could have set this story (it seems) in just about any year prior to the mid 1800s and it would have read the same. Wondering if that will become more clear as time goes by. Kaya seems kind of self-centered at this point, and I'm hoping that will also change as right now I'm not connecting with her as much as I would like.

    29. I liked this book because Kaya was going to a camp with some other Nez Perce Indians to catch trout and to eat them. Kaya had a horse named Steps High. He was black and white. At the end of the book, Kaya's blind sister, Speaking Rain, fell into the fast current of the water. Kaya saved Speaking Rain's life. She wrote Steps High to save Speaking Rain, and her father watched her.-by Felicity

    30. My daughter loves American girl books so I got the Kaya set to read while we were camping at Wallowa lake where part of the story takes place. While a good story and written with lots of history it may not be for every little girl. I recommend reading ahead so you are prepared to answer any questions your little one might have.
