Excellent Books 15 octobre 2003
Par "melindakay" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Last Christmas, just after she turned 5, my daughter received the present she wanted most--the complete set of Kaya books, her first experience of the American Girls. We began reading them together right away, and she loved them. While the reading level is higher than most of the American Girls books, she had few problems with comprehension as I read the text aloud. She began using many of the Nez Perce words she learned from the story--for some time, her daddy became "Toe-Ta" and I was "Eetsa." Another reviewer complained about the Native American religious beliefs scattered about the text. I found these to be in context for the character (after all, what would one expect given the culture and the time?), and when our faith differs from what is written in the book, it made for some good discussion. Kaya is a character who comes across as real--she makes mistakes, she has doubts, frustrations, and fears. What makes her a great character is that she learns from her mistakes and meets her fears head on with courage. Katie and I look forward to reading more American Girls books together over the years. Our introduction to them has made us eager for more.

Exciting New Series! 8 septembre 2002
Par Tracy Robert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Pleasant Company has broken the mold of the format they have always used for their traditional American Girl stories in order to bring their readers a Native American character with courage, pride, and cultural integrity. You will not find school lessons, birthday parties, or Christmas celebrations in this series because they are all a product of European culture. What you will find in this series are stories that are full of fresh ideas for both the American Girl series and other similiar historic fiction for this age group.
The characters and the setting vividly draw you into the 1764 world of the Nez Perce. All of the stories are fast paced with interesting and original plots and characters. Because of the low predictability of the plot and the unfamiliarity of the setting, I would highly recommend these books for readers over age 8, and not younger. The first few books are particularly difficult to read. As an adult reader, I periodically had to reread a sentence or two to pick up on why or how something a few sentences later had occured. I found that Books 3-6 did get easier to read then the the first two books were, but this is still not a series for young children.
What I liked the most about the Kaya series was watching the development of her character. She makes poor choices in the first book because she does what is right for herself instead of looking after others. As the series progresses, you see Kaya learn from her mistakes and develop her own character from one who is immature to one who possesses many admirable qualities. She deals with many losses and changes with courage and by the last book, she is greatly rewarded for it. She learns to be more patient, to listen to the wisdom of her elders, and to make better choices for herself that include looking after others. These are all important messages for today's youth that I have not seen often in children's books. Kaya is a likable character in an interesting world and it is a pleasure to see her grow into her potential.

I'm stunned! 26 septembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My nine-year-old daughter and I read the Kaya stories several months ago. Now I'm ordering an extra set for her school library.
This is one of the two or three best American Girl series. The stories couldn't be more gripping and believable; and Kaya couldn't be more delightful. The stories also do a wonderful job of teaching about the Nez Perce.
Now, placing my order, I'm stunned to discover that your two featured reviews are critical of these books. Very idiosyncratic reactions. Go to the children's section of any bookstore and ask the staff what their customers think. Girls love these stories.
Also, you might include in your "If you liked this book . . ." listings Kathleen Ernst's "Trouble at Fort LaPointe."
Fie on the reviewers who panned Kaya. They're mistaken.

Nice introduction to Native American culture 8 novembre 2011
Par MommyToyLover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My 7 year old and I just finished Kaya set. We liked it but just didn't like it as much as some other AG sets (Kirsten and Julie). This was an important story to be written and read but not neccessarily as light hearted and enjoyable as others. I think Kaya is better suited for older girls (10+). One of the main problems we had was the excessive descriptions of nature. It got pretty boring for my daughter, so I had to speed it along often. Our kids live in a fast pace world and don't have much patience for two page descriptions of the Salmon valley. Also the "namesake's" relationship with Kaya is not fully developed so for Kaya to mourn the death of this woman for so long is pretty far out.
Here is what we liked:
1) Learning about Indian culture and believes.
2) Watching Kaya grow as a person from a selfish girl to responsible and brave young woman.
3) The dog and puppy stories are great, any kid who loves animals will enjoy that particular book.
4) Kidnapping of Kaya and her sister might give you an oportunity to discuss "stranger danger" and how to fight the kidnapper.
5) Exposure to ideas that you might not introduce your kids to (superstitions, sacrefices to skin people, human spirit in animal body etc).
6) Kaya's blind sister doesn't dwell on her handicap, she is a valued member of community and hard working.
7) Most little girls like horses, so they will enjoy the bond that Kaya has with her special horse.
8) Kaya has a strong family structure and supporting community.
9) Kaya is a hard worker and takes pride in being of help to her community.
Negatives:
1)There is a scene in the first book where "switch woman" whips all the kids for Kaya's mistake. This can be disturbing to children, raised in the culture that frowns on corporal punishment.
2)Poorly developed "namesake" character and relationship to Kaya and subsequent Kaya's moping around "in mourning".
3)Somewhat confusing "visions" that Kaya has (wolf spirit shows her the way across the snowy mountain when she's lost).
4) There is a lot of mysticism in these books. If your family is not used to talking about "spirituality" you might have to be ready to explain why people believe in things that are not real. But that might be a positive too, if it provokes a good "teachable moment" conversation.
Overall it's an important series that should be read. We would have enjoyed it more without the "namesake" storyline.

Kaya: An American Girl 7 février 2006
Par Allison Fitch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I started reading the Kaya books to my 6 year old daughter a few months ago, and she loves them. I like how the author takes the reader into the world of Native American culture in a way that is interesting to adults and children. My daughter practices saying the Nez Perce words, which are so conviently located in the glossary in the back of the book. It's helped to open up her world to other cultures right here in our own country. Kaya is a brave girl with anxieties who loves her family; not all that different from our own American girls of today! I highly recommend these books for mothers and daughters to read together when they're young, then have them read them again later on their own.
