The First Fire: A Cherokee Story

USD $14.95

The First Fire, A Cherokee Story takes place in a time when animals could do many of the things that people do.

Great Thunder and his sons saw the plight of the animals so he sent lightning down to strike a tree…

This is the perfect book for second grade animal fables block, third grade creation stories block, or the fourth grade Native American block! I’m a bit fan of reading the same book over multiple years (the students get something new from it each time) so this book could be a cornerstone of your classroom.
