Really lovely artwork by Mikela Prevost! Based on a true story about the son of a Jewish adventurer, Solomon Bibo, who married an Acoma woman and raised children who were both Jewish and Pueblo Indian. The story as told by Heidi Smith Hyde draws parallels between the Jewish Bar Mitzvah and the ceremony where the main character, Elan, becomes an Acoma tribesman.

This book has a seemingly great premise. The book follows the thirteenth year of Elan, whose father is Jewish and whose mother descends from the Acoma Pueblo tribe.

Based on a true story of a bi-cultural boy named Elan who is Native American and Jewish. The story is about his family and the traditional coming of age ceremonies in both cultures - the similarities are amazing and shows that different cultures may not be that different after all. I really liked how his name had meaning/symbolism in both cultures!

I bought this book with the kindergarten year-long unit on celebrations in mind and it did not disappoint. I'm always happy to find Jewish books about something other than Hanukkah and I think this will introduce my students - many Third Culture and bicultural kids - to cultures new to them and different, but Elan's story will, I hope, resonate with them as he finds a happy place in both worlds.
