Algonquin is a recent release from the ABDO Publishing Company about Native Americans and authored by Sarah Tieck. This 32-page information book is designed for grade two to grade five readers interested in history and cultural traditions of First Nations. Simple sentences in large font make this an ideal non-fiction title for elementary Social Studies projects. In 2000 ABDO released a similar series. This 2015 publication does not identify the content and cultural validators. In this title the author identifies the Algonquin First Nation in the Ottawa River region. A helpful map places this Nation on the Ontario and Quebec border. Unfortunately the book does not explain the Nation's name for themselves, leaving the reader with details from the Mi'kmaq Nation. All text is presented in past tense until the page 27 timeline, and the short chapter about A Strong Nation. The final contemporary quote is provided by William Commanda and reference to Kitigan Zibi. The book contains colour photographs throughout, an index, glossary and pronunciation guide, and weblinks to the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn. Issues about terminology could be improved. This 2015 Algonquin title is a useful resource for the revised Ontario Social Studies expectations for grade 2 A2.3; grade 3 A1.1; A3.1; and grade 5 A3.1, among others. Reading Level: 4.0; Guided Reading Level: P
