Is this book okay for my child?

If you are not sure about a book your child would like to read, you can look it up age-appropriateness on http://www.commonsensemedia.org/book-reviews and see how it is rated for message, violence, sexuality, and language.  You can also check out movies and other media.


Powhatan Culture

This is a site of the Native American reservation for the Powhatan Renape Nation that is located in NJ.  Since most of the Powhatan were disbursed or killed following the establishment of Jamestown, they have settled elsewhere.  Be sure to check out the interesting article on the "Myth of Pocahontas."  http://www.powhatan.org/

A great site for kids with frequently asked questions and lots of links to more information.  http://www.bigorrin.org/powhatan_kids.htm

Local Libraries

The public libraries in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Floyd, and Shawsville have a website for finding books, but also have an amazing selection of community activities as well.  If there is a book you need at a library that is not close to you, they will send it to your nearest library.  www.mfrl.org

Radford has its own library full of great resources, too!  http://www.radford.va.us/
