A book that blends a modern story with traditional Indigenous culture, “Sweetgrass” is a positive and enlightening story that follows characters as they pick sweetgrass—one of the four traditional Indigenous medicines—and learn about their family’s traditional respect for the land and living things. This picture book is suitable in a Grade K–5 classroom and lends itself well as a read-aloud, prompting discussions about Indigenous traditions. The story may segue into geography lessons or inspire opportunities for students to explore the nature around them and learn about their local environment, enabling them to connect to the land.
