Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

2007 National Book Award Winner The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie is available on audio from Recorded Books.

A starred review from School Library Journal says, “The teen’s determination to both improve himself and overcome poverty, despite the handicaps of birth, circumstances, and race, delivers a positive message in a low-key manner. Alexie’s tale of self-discovery is a first purchase for all libraries.” The book, which includes cartoon illustrations of the protagonist’s daily life, will appeal to reluctant readers who are put-off by large quantities of text. Pair the print book with the Recorded Books audio to totally engage your students in the text.

This title is available on Playaway and as a Playaway homework pack. generic playaway - small
