Listening to the natural world around her, she found the strength, speed, and wisdom to perservere through the harsh elements, even after losing her soft, warm mo-ki-sins in the snow. In the spring, the delicate lady slipper flowers emerged and bloomed everywhere she ha [...]

      This is a wonderful and dramatic Ojibwe tale that describes how the Lady Slipper flower came to be. The story is inspiring and enchanting - depicting a brave and strong little girl who saves the members of her family from the ravages of a terrible disease by making a dangerous journey to a neighboring village to get medicine. The illustrations are very nice and complement the tale well. We really enjoyed reading this story aloud together.

    9. Marmot says:

      I had to get this book in to the library when I saw it on , as it is about how my favourite flower came to be! The story was good, and they included the traditional words for things like wind, snow and the northern lights. The illustrations were not really my favourite though, but they got the job done.

    10. Rosalie says:

      I always wondered if there was more to the folklore/story behind the lady slipper flower, other than they really do look like a slipper or moccasin. The illustrations are well done and story flows nicely.

    11. Lindsey says:

      A Ojibwe Tale about how the delicate wild flower called the Lady Slipper came to grow in the Northern United States and Canada. The vibrant pictures and the sparse text would make this a quick read aloud.

    12. Amy says:

      I had never heard this Ojibwe legend while growing up in Minnesota, but I loved the illustrations and the story of the little girl, and the naming of lady slipper flowers in Ojibwe culture and language.

    13. Claudia says:

      This book is very great to use as a link in social studies and studying other groups. It talks about sicknesses in the Native American people, so the students can learn some of their language and discuss why the girl had to go to another tribe? How is that different from today?

    14. Araceli says:

      I JUST WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!
