    Don t feel like writing a coherent review, but here are some notes There are plenty of indigenous people writing about their own cultures and histories so tbh I don t see the point of anyone else writing educational stories like this and profiting off of them unless there s significant collaboration involved Not to mention a lot of this is inaccurate and or offensive, sooo This is about two white kids Jack and Annie who travel back in time to visit a Lakota encampment As if Lakota people don t exist today The fact that they have to time travel in a magical tree house to interact with indigenous people instead of stepping out of their backyard to engage with the real world structures the whole story as fantasy and detaches it from its historical context There s literally no mention of present day Lakota people and how colonization has damaged their way of life They travel back to a time before white settlers and then at the end return home to an apparently post colonial world There s no mention at ALL of colonialism or anything that happened in between, not even in super basic terms that kids could and should understand They re only there for ONE DAY and Annie somehow manages to summon help from the beyond and get visited by a sacred figure that is supposed to only appear in times of crisis or once in every generationprobably not for a white kid in a frivolous situation And omg this is the worst Soon everything will change, Jack said sadly The buffalo will vanish The old way of life for the Lakota will vanish, too But the Great Spirit won t ever vanish, said Annie It will always take care of Black Hawk s people Jack smiled Annie s words made him feel better Uhh why will everything vanish Another euphemism about colonialism As if it wasn t a series of calculated moves No accountability whatsoever here, just a band aid for white guilt Major appropriation of a Lakota belief the Great Spirit to make Jack feel better ugh uGh UGH What exactly is this supposed to teach non indigenous kids because they are clearly the intended audience It seems like it s promoting ignorance, a total lack of reflection and or action rant

    Osborne has largely steered clear of the history of the Americas in her series, and with good reason the legacy of colonialism is an enormously difficult subject to approach for any age group In the latest story arc of the series, which includes books 17 20, Osborne has finally ventured into the relatively recent American past and the results at least here are mixed.

    While she describes the mass slaughter of the bison unambiguously, even making the point that it was a military maneuver designed to weaken aboriginal resistance to European powers, the larger issue of genocide is ignored completely Although this doesn t really come as a surprise, I keep hoping that Osborne will sneak something really radical into her books some day.

    3.5 starsLots of good information in this one Jack and Annie go back in time and spend a day with some Lakota indians Jack s trusty research book had some great facts to share about the Indians, but they also spent some time with an Indian grandmother who taught them some fascinating things about their beliefs and way of life.The adventure with the buffalo was improbable and somewhat worrisome I grew up not far from Yellowstone National Park, and we d visit at least once a year So perhaps it s my perspective of having don t go near the buffalo ingrained into me for as long as I can remember, but their adventure seemed reckless, and the magical rescue misleading Ugh, I sound like a grown up

    I didn t like this book because I do not like buffaloes charging at me I enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Annie calmed a bunch of buffaloes down when they were charging at Black Hawk and Jack made Sunlight a horse that Annie named go down to the buffaloes and Black Hawk went on to Sunlight.

    I really liked this one for the wisdom hidden in Lakota indians words about life, school, food, soul Deep questions about our society and Lakota s arose in my 5yo s mind and heart after reading this book.

    Plot Jake and Annie go on an adventure back in time to the Great Plains and learn how the Indians obtained their resource and their belief in the Great Spirit Jack and Annie learned quite a bit from the Indians It was a simpler time that should ve never been disturbed In my opinion, Indians had it right, and the white man ruined it Characterization The main characters in Magic Tree House 18 Buffalo Before Breakfast are Jack, Annie, Black Hawk,and Grandma Jack and Annie are two kids from Frog Creek, Pennsylvania ,who travel through time and go on cool adventures to try and help their friend, Teddy They end up meeting Black Hawk and Grandma who happen to be Lakota Indians Setting The setting date and time of Jack and Annie s adventure was during the early 1800 s before the white man took the Indians land This specific tribe was one of the biggest Indian tribes throughout America They were called the Lakota Indians The Lakota were very resourceful people They hunted the great buffalo that roamed the Great Plains in such mass and when they killed they used every last part of the buffalo For example, the bones of a buffalo would be used as tools, the hide for clothing, and the meat for the feast after a good hunt Thematic Connection I feel the main message in the story of Buffalo Before Breakfast is that the Lakota Indians had the perfect set up of living off the land and not wasting any resources I feel that the Lakota Indians represent how Americans should actually live instead of all the materialistic and wasteful people who have developed over the centuries Recommendation I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone This book is all around a good book I think it would appeal towards the younger generation from about 4 12 grade It s truly a great educational book that teaches you to understand how the Indians lived off the land and how resourceful they were It s amazing what you can learn from a good book.

    In Buffalo Before Breakfast Jack and Annie are sent to a Lakota village where they must earn a gift of courage to help Arthur in Camelot.Jack and Annie have to tread carefully when making contact with the Lakota villagers The rely on Morgan s book for how to introduce themselves and how act respectfully and bravely They meet a boy of similar age who lives with his grandmother.Together Jack, Annie and the Lakota boy go hunting for bison The learn an important lesson about the difference between being careful and brave and being careless and brave The three get carried away with being brave that they end up starting a bison stampede.It was an interesting introduction to Lakota life as it must have been like before homesteaders started taking over the land It seemed though simplistic compared to recent books and later books in the series Here they are supposed to be brave but that need is brought on by an act of stupidity It would have been better if the stampede had been the result of something unrelated.

    Libriccino molto molto breve, credo che l et di lettura sia ancora pi bassa di quella che mi aspettassi Un buono spunto per parlare un po degli indiani facendo appassionare sia maschietti che femminucce di solito gli indiani sono da maschi in quanto i protagonisti sono fratello e sorella.
