All children like pretend games and love to play Indians, and this is a book that will appeal to both these interests. It is designed to provide young readers with the tools necessary for creative and imaginative dramatic play and to give them some insight into the lives of the Indian people. The projects all center around Indians. The reader can make and wear a complete Indian costume--from moccasins to headband--and when he is suitably costumed, there are rules for Indian games he can play. He can make and use ceremonial masks, musical instruments, a bow and arrow, a shield, and wampum. There are also directions for making model villages, Indian puppets, a teepee, a cooking rack, a mortar and pestle, and many other articles no self-respecting Indian would have been without. Arnold Lobel's utterly enchanting pictures, which appear on every page, complement the clear directions in the text as well as add great charm and humor to the book.
