Buffalo on the Ridge, a fun and educational adventure book for young readers, will help parents teach their children about animals and the environment. A full color book!

Our Thoughts:

This book takes place in Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  I’m from the Black Hills so when I heard of this book I was really excited.  I don’t live there any longer and I was thinking this might be the perfect book to remind my kids that that’s where their Nana lives!  
I really thought it was a cute story and taught some good lessons.  One was to listen to your mother cause she really does know best!  It also teaches about animals and the environment.  There was a glossary in the back that tells all about the animals in the story and even the flowers and trees portrayed in the illustrations.  The story wasn’t too long and was pretty fun to read aloud.  It wasn’t rhyming or anything, but I didn’t find reading it to be tedious.  
The pages are full color and very cute!  I really enjoyed pointing things out to the kids in the pictures and it actually did bring back memories of camping because I think she did quite well with the illustrations and in portraying the country side.  

I give this book 4/5 moons!

  1. Hi – thanks for stopping by Family Literacy and commenting. I loved Little Princess too – and make sure I have it in my bookfairs and booths to sell. I usually started reading classics like this to my kids at 4 – this one and Heidi is another great book.

    I was just reading about your book raising for the reservation and needed to comment. Maybe we could start up a blog or a facebook page for donating funds for the reservation. I work with Usborne Books and they have a great bookfair program and if we could get a grant Usborne will match it with an additional 50% in books. ie – $1000 becomes $1500 in books!

    Just a thought. It would be interesting to see if we could get Amazon, BN, and some other bookstores behind us – maybe they could match what we raise?
