Read full description of the books:
Minnow and Rose is a cultural and historical book that shows a glimpse of life on the Oregon Trail, but also the positive relationships that often existed between the Pioneers and the Native Americans.
This book celebrates friendship and cultural differences as Minnow (Native American) and Rose (Pioneer) become friends despite the many differences that exist between them.
The illustrations in the book are beautiful! They accurately represent the characters and life during the 1800's on the Oregon Trail. This is great book to use in a History lesson when students are learning about the Oregon Trail. It also teaches children that you can become friends with any person that comes from a different culture. The story is also written from both girls' perspective, which I found interesting but a little confusing at the same time. One page describes what happens in the story from Minnow's perspective and the next page what happens from Rose's view. This made the story feel a little disconnected because you after reading one point of view you expect a continuation on the next page and it rather would take you back to introduce the other girl's perspective.
Besides that being the only downside I found in the story, I would still love to use this book in my own classroom to teach two very important concepts - The history of the Oregon Trail and the meaning of true friendship.
