On his birthday, Omri is somewhat disappointed to receive nothing but a small plastic Indian from his friend Patrick, but he is pleased when his brother Gillon gives him a white metal cupboard. Omri discovers that a key, once belonging to his great-grandmother, fits the lock on the cupboard perfectly. He puts the plastic Indian in the cupboard for the night and locks the door. In the morning Omri is shocked to discover that the cupboard has somehow brought the Indian to life. Keeping it a secret, Omri helps the Indian adjust to his new home in Omri's bedroom, providing him with food and shelter; but Omri learns that the Indian is more than a novelty. He is a real person, an Iroquois brave. He has a name - Little Bear - and he lived in the past over 200 years ago. What began as fun turns out to have very serious repercussions when Omri lets his friend Patrick in on the secret.

    Indian in the Cupboard

    Posted by Renee on 19th Nov 2017

    I've ordered several Progeny Press study guide's over the past 10 years and have never been disappointed. They are well written, thought provoking, grade appropriate and beneficial in helping a student grasp various reading comprehension concepts.

    My son hasn't started Indian in the Cupboard yet, he started with Shiloh. But, we love the CD study guides. These are really great for a language arts program.
