Arranged in alphabetical order, the pictures are accompanied with their names printed in both the English and Blackfeet languages. The reverse side of each page is left blank to give the student room to practice writing the picture words. A Piegan Blackfeet pronunciation and spelling guide is included for the teacher. Pictures of animals dominate the coloring book; the animal life represented includes the bear, buffalo, cat, cow, coyote, and deer. Also pictured are the dog, horse, mouse, otter, pig, and rabbit. Three birds are represented, the chicken, crow, and owl, as are two reptiles, the frog and turtle. Insects include the bee, butterfly, and grasshopper.
