Book Review: Pueblo Girls: Growing Up in Two Worlds

The Scoop Pueblo Girls: Growing Up in Two Worlds gives a straightforward view into what it's like to live in today's Pueblos. The storyline isn't super engaging, but if you're headed to New Mexico or Arizona it's a nice way to give your kids a realistic view into a world that is at once very similar to their own and also very different.

When we're traveling, even with the kids, it can be tough to feel like we've connected with the way people live now. We can see there homes, we can read about or enjoy museum exhibits about the history, but what is it like to blend old and new in the real world? Pueblo Girls: Growing Up in Two Worlds attempts to answer that with photos and descriptive text about two girls who live in the San Ildefonso Pueblo twenty-two miles north of Santa Fe. It's a fact filled book that shows pictures of home, school, and local ceremonies. Though the storyline isn't strong enough for kids to develop a true connection to the two girls, Pueblo Girls is great background for kids visiting New Mexico or Arizona.

    Thanks for the review. Seems like it would be a good read if, like you said, you were headed on a vacation to a pueblo or going in that area of the country. Otherwise, I think I'll pass. Thanks for sharing!
