  So the first book I’ll review to celebrate this month is an AMAZING new picture book called Hiawatha and the Peacemaker by Robbie Robertson and illustrated by David Shannon. This book tells the story of how the warring nations of the Haudnosaunee came together in peace. A historical note explains that Hiawatha and the Peacemaker, a spiritual leader named Deganawida, are thought to have lived in the 14th century. The story is set against strong, beautifully rendered oil illustrations by David Shannon that respect rather than romanticize the characters. (Ages 8–11). Hiawatha prepares a curative medicine for him; Shannon portrays his recovery and eventual transmogrification as an eagle. Expressive, handsome, and well-documented. (historical note, acknowledgments, author’s note) (Picture book/folk tale. ). Hiawatha and the Peacemaker by Robbie Robertson is a great book about peace, forgiveness and how the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy came to be. This packet contains THREE VERSIONS of questions WITH ANSWERS that can follow the reading.
