    1. I learned from Shaman's apprentice that a Shaman is a medicine man. Also, the Indians lived in tents and made clothes from cotton plant and used canoes. I learned that an apprentice is a student, and Kamanya was the apprentice to be next Shaman. I like that he turns into the next Shaman, and Shaman's are cool because they are like super guys because they heal. I also learned that these Indians believed in a spirit world where people go when they die. ~Ethan 8/20/2010

    2. Following an ethnobotanist as he discovers shamanistic culture in the Rainforest is important work. Even more imperative is sustainably preserving the practice of shamanship in order to ensure this wealth of knowledge is not lost forever. Written for children, this vivid picture book invites young minds to explore the rainforest and dream of ways in which we may protect all its wonders and possibilities for future generations of all species.

    3. Lynne Cherry gives us a terrific story of a young indian boy in the rainforest that hopes to one day be a shaman. For many years, the tribe has always known of the healing properties that the wonderful holds in its midst. The young boy and his tribe learn the wonders as the learn the true value of the rainforest. A great story to incorporate into a science unit for elementary students.

    5. 4 and a half starsAfter teaching about the Rain forest this past school year in more depth and complexity than I ever have before, I am so saddened that we do not appreciate it enough to use it respectfully. The medicinal blessings it produces are but one HUGE reason we need to take care of it and not destroy it. Who knows what cures may never be found for disease if the plants that would provide the medicine are destroyed. I loved how this book shows how wise the tribal shaman of the rainforest [...]

    6. Actually, I saw this read on Reading Rainbow. It reminded me of Townsend's account of totally humiliating a shaman in the Pacific Northwest, because the man didn't know how to treat malaria, a disease which was new to the area at the time (and is rarely found there anymore).The arrogant attitude of missionaries and 'modern' doctors has resulted in the loss of many potential cures and treatments. Ethnobotanists have tried to make up for this, and collect information before it's lost. This book is [...]

    7. "The Shaman's Apprentice" tells the story of a tribe that adapts to a new life when stangers come in and start to teach them about their religion, customs and teach them to read and write. After they give some of the people pills to cure the malaria, the people lose faith in the Shaman but it is restored with the help of a new stranger with the help of a book. Eventually, the young boy, becomes the Shaman and the strong tradition is carried on.

    8. I think that the village has a lot of inspiration there in the village. Out siders try to come & changed the shaman's perspective on some of there beliefs. Just like the real world today you can be doing what work's for you but there will be some one to attempt changing your mind.

    9. sometimes it takes the outside world to show people the value of their own culture and ideals, a young boy questions his path when milaria affects his small amazon village, but an out side visiter shows him and his people that the shaman's value again

    10. Very interesting read on Ethnobiology; enjoyable for anyone interested in travel, indigenous cultures, biology, medicine, and shamanism

    11. Deals with the destructive effects of missionary groups on indigenous peoples and their traditional medicine.

    12. Where does medicine come from? Another tale of a tribe in the rainforest. Very insightful about another way of life and the science in that culture.

    13. I enjoyed this book because it was so versitile in using for lesson. It covered a variety of topics such as culture, the environment, and religion. The illustrations were fantastic.

    14. A detailed description of the hunt for medicinal plants in the rainforest. At the same time, an account of the rapid decimation of the indigenous tribes.
