UPDATED The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush is a wonderful book to read in the spring as study about legends and wildflowers. Students can learn about the writings of Tomie dePaola and research favorite wildflowers. I've included optional Google Slides for wildflower research. (I have reviewed the product to make sure it is appropriate in depicting Native Americans. I have removed clipart of the Plains tribe boy clipart. This is a legend by Tomie DePaola and focuses on the book, legends, wildflowers, and students doing their own research about the Plains culture. If teachers do not wish to use any part of the product, they are welcome to leave out those slides.)
