To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The illustrations are beautifully done, the story fun and swift. Id love to see more tales like this in this style, with the strong visual storytelling. Its wonderful to see a book like this that also teaches about a culture that not everyone would otherwise have a chance to learn about. 10/10 for me.
The images in this picture book are beautiful. It was refreshing to read about a culture I had not heard of before....
The story of 2 friends from opposing tribes made me hope that they would eventually fall in love.... Yet, their forbidden love adds a twist.
The ending left me wanting some closure to their love story that never really gets answered. The romantic in me is left wanting more, but the teacher in me likes the idea that the reader can decide the ending in their own mind.
Such a cute story! A little sad though! I loved the artwork, it was absolutely beautiful. I only wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. Additionally, Taino Tales seems like it would be a bunch of different stories, not just one. Unless this is going to be a series of stories, in that case, sign me up!
This book was enlightening to read. I love how Alida and Taroo found true love with each other. It made me a bit sad that they couldn’t be together in the human form but I love how they were able to find each other again as flower and bird.
My daughter and I enjoyed this story together. I wanted more! I appreciate this kids book as being a good starting point and introduction to culture, roots, and folk tales. I look forward to reading more about the Taino heritage.
