Ginny Weeks from Blackfoot Community College was kind enough to respond with her own recommendation for teaching about Columbus. She writes, "Morning Girl by Michael Dorris, is a good book which I have read to classes on Columbus Day. It's very well written, easy to read aloud, and appropriate for children, but it works for all ages. Here's link to information about it."
On another note entirely, it is only a week until MEA. We hope to see you at one of our sessions (more details here) or at our booth. Free prizes (while they last) for folks who stop by the booth and tell us they read this blog.
