Joe and His Happy Family. Books One and Two.
A series of supplementary readers is being developed to increase reading interest and to build vocabulary among Navajo Indian children. Words used are taken from experiences in which the child is a daily participant. Illustrations in Book I depict the environment of the Navajo reservation, while Book II moves from the reservation to a community setting and introduces abstract words. Each book in the planned series will move the central character into the complexities of a more advanced society. Books III and IV, though not published at this time, will move further into the semantic and syntactic areas of reading. (JH)
