Summary, etc.: "'A Broken Flute: The Native Experience in Books for Children' is a companion to its predecessor published by Oyate, 'Through Indian Eyes: The Native Experience in Books for Children'. A compilation of work by Native parents, children, educators, poets and writers, 'A Broken Flute' contains, from a Native perspective, 'living stories', essays, poetry, and hundreds of reviews of 'children's books about Indians'. It's an indispensable volume for anyone interested in presenting honest materials by and about indigenous peoples to children."--Publisher's website.
