Anna Fields's lucid narration introduces Omakayas (Little Frog), her family, her Ojibwe tribe, and her life on an island in Wisconsin's Lake Superior in 1850. Fields brings the vibrant tale, with overtones of the classic narrative poems HIAWATHA and EVANGELINE, to life, making it timely and accessible and reflecting the innocent, playful, and wonderful world of children, families, and pets in any time or place. While the title is designated for children, I'd recommend this captivating listening experience for adults as well. As the reading ends poignantly, be prepared to discuss the material with young listeners. Packaging is attractive and helpful, with chapter titles and listening times on each disc.
