    1. I do a dramatic presentation of this book several times a year at sixth grade camps and other places One Small Blue Bead is a wonderful story with deep meanings IF you look for and try to figure out those meanings There are a number of themes in the story respect for the earth and all who live here, growing up and maturing, taking on responsibility, trying new things yet always being positive, and most important of all, learning to connect with others from the past, present, and future We use t [...]

    2. Almost gave it a two this isn t very readable to me It was published in 1965 and is out of print It is written in verse and the meter just doesn t feel right to memething is off I like the idea of connecting a modern day Caucasian boy who finds a blue bead to the centuries ago Native American boy who had it first However, today you would be told to leave artifacts in place not disturb or collect Still, I LOVE Byrd Baylor

    3. I thought that this book was long, and it wasn t the story I expected I was expecting a story about the Native Americans, but it was about cavemen The rhyme scheme was a bit confusing p, and I think an elementary student would have difficulty reading it out loud It wasn t my favorite book, but the story was good.

    4. Really loved this prehistoric picture book Some people may not enjoy it because it s all written in rhyme but it didn t bother me I love the character of both the young both and the old man Truly a story of adventure

    5. Written completely in rhyme, this is an excellent story about the nomads told through two characters a young man and an older man A very touching, VERY SAD, story Truly a story of adventure A great book about prehistoric times.

    6. Introduced some useful ideas, the verse and rhyme wasn t awful Lots of naked in the illustrations.

    7. I ve read this short little book 32pgs three times now to my daughters and have yet to make it through without tears Truly touching
