Kaya Series  Nov 2, 2006
American Girl Series

Are you looking for a book that takes you on adventures? Well if you are, the American Girl series is a great place to start!
The books are about nine to eleven year old girls. They take you back in time as late as the 1700s. They let you learn about different cultures and about what a girl's life was like back then. If you are dieing for a great book, choose a book from the American Girl series.

Meet Kaya  Jul 6, 2006
Meet Kaya" is about a nine-year-old Nez Perce indian girl who takes a trip with her family to Salmon River for the annual salmon harvest. Kaya is supposed to be baby-sitting her little brothers when a pesky boy starts making fun of Kaya's horse, saying that it is skittish and probably can't run. Kaya is furious and agrees to race her horse against his, leaving her blind friend, Speaking Rain, to take care of the little boys. Of course, the little boys run away and Speaking Rain runs into danger while looking for them. Can Kaya find the boys and save Speaking Rain from a watery grave?

I didn't like this book as much as the other books in the American Girls Collection series because it felt too short and Kaya was hard to identify with. Some of her motives are unclear and she seems a little too prickly and mad in most of the scenes. Parts of the story are VERY unrealistic, particularly the climax. However, the plot never felt forced or random, which I liked. And a council made of of tribal elders and historians worked on the whole Kaya series to authenticate the books, which I found really fascinating. Overall a great addition to the American Girls Collection!
Kaya, An American Girl  Feb 12, 2006
This is the only book from the American Girl Collection that I have read. It is about Kaya, an adventurous Nez Perce girl who finds it hard not to boast about her horse, Steps High. Kaya wants to be the best horsewoman in the villiage. The boasting ends up putting her, her horse, and twin brothers in danger. Kaya (and her friends) are then given a punishment for Kaya's deed. She is then given a terrible nickname and wonders when she will ever live it down.
I really enjoyed learning about Kaya's life and the Nez Perce Indians. This book collection would be a great way to get girls / students interested in American history. Because the Nimiipuu speak the Nez Perce language, you will see Nez Perce words in the book. The pronunciations and meansing (also pictures) of these words are found in the glossary. My favorite part was the "Looking Back, A Peek Into the Past" sectino. This gives the reader actual history of the Nez Perce Indians and where they are today.
Meeting Kaya  Oct 23, 2004
Kaya is a Nez Perce Native American girl growing up around Oregon. This book introduces you to her, and tells you about the way her people do things. There are also a few pages in the back of the book that tell you about the Nez Perce and show real photographs of Nez Perce people and their things. The best words to describe Kaya would be brave, adventurous, curious, and loving. Kaya is also a little cocky, but is learning to bite her tongue when she feels herself bragging. Actually, it is bragging that gets her into a mess and earns her a bothersome nickname. There isn't very much action in this book, but that's okay, because I love hearing about the Nez Perce people and their ways. The art in the book is very colorful, and the writing is very descriptive and makes Kaya's world easy to imagine.

I would recommend this book to you if you like American Girl, are learning about the Nez Perce, or want a good series to read about a Native American girl. I would not recommend this book to you if you are looking for a book about magic, or the typical school-story type of book.
Meet Kaya  Oct 17, 2004
The title says it all. This book introduces you to the newest American Girl, Kaya! She's brave, adventurous...and a little conceited. But she's working to make herself a better, and more reliable person. Her heart is with her beautiful horse, Steps High, who continually brings her so much happiness! The book basically tells you about Kaya and her friends and family. There aren't any especially exciting parts, except a few small moments. The author beautfully describes Kaya's world, and the artwork in the book is wonderful. I've almost finished this series, and would recommend it to every girl who loves to read!
