Praise from the REVERE Awards Judges:
“The Legend of Hobbomock is gorgeous and educational
and a worthy addition to any home or school bookshelf.”
“An engaging story [that] would lend itself to folklore
projects beyond the specific Native American content...
innovative teachers could adapt it nicely.”
“Students will be able to relate to the content ...
and it will spark their interest to learn more about
Native American tribes and culture in general.”
"I read 'The Legend of Hobbomock' to my son for school and I was enthralled with the book. It is a wonderful story and as a home schooler the story tied in so well with our geography lesson on land forms as well as our study of folklore and legends. Thanks for the fabulous read!" - Jennifer Traynor
