    Apparently many people feel that this book is full of racist stereotypes I can see where they re coming from, starting with the outdated term Indian, as opposed to Native American or Iroquois, in this case Not only that, but the Indian in the book, Little Bear, speaks in very broken English, and he has a seemingly simplistic, stereotypical out

    I ve heard a lot of negativity regarding this book, especially that it is notoriously racist However, although it does feature a few dated stereotypes, I don t know if I would really call it racist In fact, the book is not only an entertaining fantasy story, but it also teaches younger readers about looking past the stereotypes in toys, books and the media an

    When Omri, a young English boy, puts a toy Indian in a medicine cabinet and turns a special key, the Indian magically comes to life But the Indian is not merely a toy come to life, but a real person with a history who has been transported into Omri s time, in miniature form Complications arise when Omri s thoughtless friend puts his toy cowboy in the cupboard to see if they will fight The two boys then end
