Where Did You Get Your Moccasins?

Illustrated by: Herman Bekkering
Age Level: 3-6

It's circle time, and in answer to his classmates' questions about his moccasins, a child describes in detail how his grandmother made them: "By washing and scraping and pulling and smoking a deer hide, my Kookum made the leather. And from the leather she made my moccasins for me." A related lesson plan is featured on the American Indians in Children's Literature blog. — Oyate
