Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this story based on a children's book series hinges on a sad moment when the main character's father dies saving her from a wolf attack. Also white men brandish guns and arrows are shot; men die of their wounds. There are some faith-based undercurrents -- characters sing hymns and speak about the "Good Lord" -- and stereotypes of Native Americans and African Americans.
