You can encourage your child’s development in this area by offering plenty of opportunity to practice, so be sure to check out our display board of upcoming weekly crafts.  There will be 75 crafts available each week on a first-come, first-serve basis… be sure to come early!

This month’s pick is One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd, by Jim Fergus.

One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial “Brides for Indians” program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man’s world. Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime. Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time. (from the Amazon.com review)
