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.
