From Booklist:

Ages 4^-8. After introducing the Navajo people's name for themselves, T'aa Dine, the authors present a Dine alphabet book using objects and words familiar to the Navajo culture. Four letters appear with Dine words, but the remaining 22 are associated with English ones--belt, grandma, yucca, etc. Each pairing is illustrated by a colored-pencil picture of the object, plant, or person named. A glossary, which includes pronunciation guidance, provides translations and a cultural context for each item, adding to the book's usefulness for introducing children to other cultures. The book may also serve as a model for student-created books. The contemporary focus on a specific tribe is a welcome change from works that clump all Indians together in a historical context without mentioning individual languages. Karen Hutt

From Publishers Weekly:

English and Navajo (or Din?) words address aspects of Navajo life; colored-pencil illustrations serve as quiet complements. All ages.
