The Lost Children can be used to teach students that "outcasts" have importance too. The message this book conveys, is important and can be uses to help build empathy in students. The Lost Children is also a book that can be used in a classroom to demonstrate why Native Americans told stories within their culture. Students can also learn about Native American culture by researching Paul Goble''s depiction of the colorful patterns and blankets that Native Americans used.

Really sad story, but a very good read. I'd share it with 4/5 graders. Talk about issues of child care. It can really bring up good discussions.
