A Broken Flute: The Native Experience in Books for Children is an indispensable selection and book review tool for teachers and librarians interested in avoiding biased, inaccurate, and stereotyping in children's books. This 463-page volume contains over 600 individual book reviews by Native American and Aboriginal librarians, educators and scholars covering resources published from 1900s to 2004. Books published in Canada and the United States are included. In addition to the reviews the book contains bibliographic essays on a variety of subjects such as Thanksgiving; A Guide for Evaluating Photoessays; the Indian boarding or residential schools, Coyote, Raven, and dreamcatchers. Multiple indexes (titles, authors/editors, artists/illustrators/photographers, poets, reviewers, storytellers/essayists, and subjects) add to the functionality of this must-have resource. The reviews contain positive and negative points about each title under review. The authors explore themes, bias, inaccuracy, stereotyping, and voice in each review. A Broken Flute is the winner of a 2006 American Book Award and a 2006 Skipping Stones Honor Award.
