The River Thief #Kidlit

From Amazon: Gluskabe comes back home after a long journey just to be told by his grandmother that the Penobscot River had dried out and that his people needed his help. Gluskabe takes his canoe back in the water and departs for a new adventure to find out what was going on. He is troubled by the news and worries for his people. This Abenaki legend is thousands of years old. Nevertheless, it is very relevant to our world of today where greed is winning over morality and decency.

My Review: Learning about what is right and culture. I just finished this book for children. I think that it fits older children better as they can more easily grasp the new language words use in the story. Above all, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of one – a Star Trek notion that rings true still today.
