    One thought on “Good Hunting, Blue Sky”

    1. Young Blue Sky is ready to embark on his first solo hunting trip. Only whenever he comes across an animal to hunt, things don't go quite as planned. Good Hunting, Blue Sky is update on Good Hunting, Little Indian, published back in 1962. This version has been significantly revamped, updating illustrations to better maintain cultural authenticity, and removing the word “Indian” from the title. Some readers may scorn this forced “political correctness” but others will appreciate the small [...]

    2. This is a good beginner book that shows a young Native American boy going out hunting on his own, hoping to bring home some meat for his family. His hunting trip does not go as he'd hoped, but in the end, he is rewarded. The narrative is simple and is good for beginning readers and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. We enjoyed reading this book together and it reinforced some of the culture we'd learned when we read the book Sitting Bull: Great Sioux Hero by George E. Stanley.

    3. This was a very unique book about and Indian boy that left out of his home to hunt his family food. It does follow him to 'hunt' but it's not graphic at all. Very fun and a 'different type' of book if you are tired of the same types of books. I did 'tag' this as Thanksgiving but it's not truly a Thanksgiving book, only would be nice to read to your children during that time of season since that seems like the time of year people want to teach children about Indians.

    4. I really value the easy reader books that interject an actual storyline and humor into the mix. This story about Blue Sky's hunting trip was a joy for my beginning reader and me!

    5. Some wonderful spreads. The 1989 "revision" has nothing on this one, adding in superfluous details to a simple story.
