COMMUNITY REVIEWS

The Birchbark House submitted by mk31 on July 26, 2014, 9:08am I liked this book, but it was a little bit slow at times. The author did a great job of telling what day-to-day life was like, and added a bit of silly humor.

I love this book! submitted by csickma on June 19, 2015, 12:07pm "The Birchbark House" is about a Ojibwa girl who is learning about herself and her loved ones. It's a tragic story that made me cry, but it's sad in a good way. It makes you want to read it again.

The whole story submitted by teri on August 11, 2016, 8:32am A native american version of Little House on the Prairie, but Louise Erdrich tells the whole story - not just the good things.

Good and Sad submitted by Maria Maguire on July 23, 2018, 8:54pm I read this book at least ten years ago, but I'll always remember it because it was the first book to ever make me cry. I liked learning about her life as a Native American and did enjoy the book, but prepare yourself for a sad story!
