I can't think of a sweeter book to read in the spring than The Legend of the Lady’s Slipper. Kathy-jo Wargin has written this beautiful folktale about a courageous Ojibwe girl who sacrifices her life to save her tribe from illness. Running Flower risks her life by running in freezing conditions to the next village to get medicine for her people. Throughout the book, students will develop a deep connection with Running Flower and be able to identify character traits. It's the perfect book to learn about the elements of legends.
