My Review: Rarely am I confused on an opinion after a book. However, this is one where I was left says, "I just don't know."
This book is hugely based on Native American custom/belief. While there is a lot I agree with, there was almost as much that I didn't. This book teaches on Aura discovery, Karma, Chakras and chakras exercises, meditation, making medicine wheels, making a dancing stick, and so on.
There are some very neat activities in here as well as some great character development areas where your child can write and draw. Included in this book are some short Native American tales as well.
In my opinion there are some very good parts to this book and I recommend that it be picked up simply for those areas. What works for one parent doesn't always work for another. So, as with many books of this type, you pick and choose the parts best for you and your family.
Review copy of this book provided by the author/publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. In no way did the provision of the book affect the outcome of my review.
