I have many goals in life... one of which is to finally reach the bottom of the pile!

Looking for Books about Illinois Mound Builders
Third graders are studying Illinois history this year. Right now they're talking about the Cahokia Mounds. I've found only one book on this topic that seems appropriate for this age: Journey to Cahokia : a boy's visit to the great mound city. I'd really like to find more titles on this topic for my library. Any suggestions?
I was a third and fourth grade classroom teacher for 14 years. I am now extending my circle of influence as a school librarian. I also babysit, tutor, and do research for an author. My brother, his wife, and their boys live in Antioch, my mom lives in Elburn, and my dad in Joliet. I have two orange and white tabby cats named Penny and Nemo. I'm 40 years old and single. I live in a great neighborhood - Silverstone Lake, in Carpentersville. I recently received my master's degree in Library and Information Science from Dominican University in Oak Park, Illinois. I went to U of I in Champaign/Urbana for undergrad and Downers Grove South for HS.
