Navajo Primer: Little Man’s Family

This simple book was written for the purpose of introducing Navajo children to the English language.  There is a guide for pronunciation of the Navajo words at the end of the text.

000-199x300

I think the most interesting part, however, are the illustrations:

011-300x182

The simple black and white pictures show scenes of Indian life.  They would make a great little coloring book or clip-art for a unit study.

028-300x218

This public domain book is available through Gutenberg.org here.
