I love this book!

"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 Birchbark House

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.
