Book Review: Buffalo Before Breakfast by Mary Pope Osborne

AuthorMary Pope Osborne
TitleBuffalo Before Breakfast
Publication Info: New York : Random House, c1999.

This is a very sweet story in the Magic Tree House series.  Annie & Jack go to the Great Plains of the 1800s and meet a Lakota boy named Black Hawk and his wise and gentle grandmother.  It’s a nice glimpse into the life of the Lakota following the buffalo across the plains in the time before white settlers arrived.  Which also makes it bittersweet since a culture and way of life were lost.  Maybe the best Magic Tree House story I’ve read yet.

Rating:  ***1/2
