Is there a further description of what these particular books are about. I am going to have my first baby here in December and would like to start a collection of books about our native cultures more than the mainstream stuff out there.

The board books I wrote about in this post are the kinds of books that are used to teach children words for colors, numbers, senses, seasons. The fancy word used for this kind of book is a "concept book." For example, in a book about colors, one page would have the word RED and then illustrations of items that are red. Or, a number 3 and then three items on that page for the child to count.

The difference in the board books I am recommending is that they are written/illustrated/published by American Indian people, and they use American Indian languages (Dine and Ojibwe).
