For your library and as a means to teach your children or grandchildren about the Native way of perceiving and understanding Creation, Dogbotz Boneyard is delighted to make available these four children’s books on Native American myths. As the back cover of each book explains, “For centuries, stories have been told that explain the world and all of its secrets. The myths explore the most famous tales in a simple writing style for young readers. The brilliant illustrations bring to life the legends of many Native American tribes.”
All four books are part of the Short Tales Native American Myth series published by Magic Wagon. Anita Yasuda authored each book, and Estudio Haus and Mark Pennington served as illustrators. At least 10 percent of the materials used in the production of each book comes from recycled materials.
The four titles presented as a single purchase include:
- The Colors of a Sunset: an Algonquin nature myth;
- Coyote, Iktome, and the Rock: a Sioux trickster myth;
- How the World Was Made: a Cherokee creation myth; and,
- Sky Woman and the Big Turtle: An Iroquois creation myth.
These stunningly illustrated and deeply spiritual myths will inspire and guide the next generation of children. The books would make for a thoughtful gift for any youngster for any occasion.
