Resources for Educators

Dear Educators,

As the daughter of school teachers, I learned early the value of finding the most interesting books on subjects that intrigued me. My parents are great readers, and passed that love of books on to me.

We select our books carefully! One of our favorite missions is to help schools stock their libraries with informative, sensitive, honest and appropriate books on Native American subjects. History, fiction, memoir, language, poetry, children's and young adult's books—we have them and would love to share.

Please get in touch with us. We're always learning, and look forward to helping you meet educational needs!

Best wishes from me and all of us at Birchbark Books,

Louise Erdrich
