Abstract:

"A little black bear and his forest friends gather materials for Spider Woman, a holy woman in Navajo/Din' culture and folklore, to weave a blanket of dreams for his winter's hibernation."

"K-Gr 3" "The prospect of downtime is tough on many a rambunctious young one. Lump Lump, a bear cub, is not keen on hibernation, until he hears Blue Bird's song about a 'blanket of dreams.'" ... "There are many sweet, noninsistent lessons gathered into this tale drawn from Navajo tradition ..." "Along with the life lessons it contains, this story has an incantatory rhythm that would lend itself beautifully as wind down to sleep."--Sandy MacDonald, Booklist.

"Numerous adaptations of folk tales from other cultures appear as children's picture books, yearly; but few are as compelling and highly recommended ..." " ... its full-color illustrations are simply gorgeous, eye-popping productions that truly stand apart from what is normally presented in a picture book ..." "Not only did Navajo weaver Barbara Teller Ornelas contribute a blanket to the story line for illustration, but she served as a consultant for the story ... (Ms. Ornelas' weavings are in the Smithsonian, the British Museum, and many other galleries)." " ... evocative, soaring, image-filled language which will attract all ages with stunning metaphors and visual and verbal beauty ..." " ... will easily move beyond the category of 'picture book folklore read-aloud' and into the realm of Native American studies (especially as the author intends to support it with lesson plans and ESL materials, produced in conjunction with language arts, wildlife biologist, and Native American cultural specialists."--Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review.

Perfect Read Aloud

by ebygipe77 (WorldCat user published about 2 weeks ago) Excellent Permalink

Young and old can relate to this native American tale, woven by the author like the animals that help to weave the "blanket of dreams." Beautiful vivid illustrations. Perfect to be read aloud in story hour.

This book features a beautiful weaving by a famous Navajo weaver.

by Rhondarahrah (WorldCat user published 2019-10-26) Excellent Permalink

This book offers children an opportunity to enjoy the rich and creative imagery of the Southwest and the beautiful weaving by Navajo weaver Barbara Ornelas. I was impressed with the range of activities on the author’s website, especially the paper weaving blanket craft.
