    One thought on “If You Lived With The Sioux Indians”

    1. While there is a great deal of information about how the Sioux people lived before the Europeans arrived, the systematic destruction of their culture is not mentioned, except on the last three pages and in an afterword. The title should end with a colon followed by “Before the white man came.” The lives of the Sioux is depicted as one that was rather carefree, with the occasional small conflict between tribes that could hardly be described by the term “war.”The lived in harmony with natu [...]

    2. I think when kids think about Native Americans, they typically think of the Sioux. - They think of the tipis and the bow and arrows. What I love about the Sioux, and most of the Native American tribes discussed in the series, is how cooperative they all were. No one was ever "poor" because the whole tribe shared whatever they had. They each had jobs that supported the tribe. The kids enjoyed reading this series. It's great for integrating history with reading.

    3. This book is a great picture book about the Sioux Indians. It is a nonfiction picture book that that talks about the daily life styles about the Sioux Indians. This book could be used in the classroom to compare and contrast other Native American Tribes.

    4. Reason for Reading: I read this aloud as part of our history curriculum this past year.Comments: Presented in a Question and Answer format this book focuses on the daily life of the Sioux Indians in the years 1800 to 1850 after the white had arrived but before they had fully settled in the west. These are the years in which the Indians rode the prairies on the horses introduced to the New World by the white man. As with previous books in this series that we have read the information is very inte [...]

    5. What I enjoyed about this book is that each section began with a question. This helped keep me engaged and curious throughout the book. If You Lived with the Sioux Indians did a great job giving background information about Sioux, and was specific in explaining that the Sioux lived differently before and after the period of which the book spoke. I also thought it did a great job clearing up common misconceptions. A great framework.

    6. This book has a lot of great information about the lives of the Sioux. It gives facts about their lives that children can understand and relate to their own lives. The illustrations really help to describe what would happen and how things used to be. I was able to learn a lot of factual, truthful information that would be great for children to learn regarding the history of out nation.

    7. This book is about what it would be like if you were a Sioux Indian child during 1800-1850. This book is for upper elementary grades and it is a part of a series of books about other tribes. This would be a great book for teaching about the natives of America during that time period.

    8. Very specific information about gender roles in Sioux society. Before the age of five, both boys and girls could hunt small animals with a bow and arrow. After age five, they began to learn the work of their parents according to gender.

    9. I liked this book because it seemed accurate and was interesting enough to hold a 5th graders attention. Will ask our school librarian to order more copies.
