“The people celebrated his return in the Dance of Life.”
This book could be a good asset to a library because it is very diverse with its characters and setting.
“The Boy was not afraid.”
Great book to be culturally diverse and to push children‘s imaginations.
Arrow to the Sun: a Pueblo Indian tale, by Gerald McDermott. Caldecott Award Book, 1974. Warm colored, detailed pictures. Symbolic and boxy characters. Tells the story of the son of the sun and his journey to find his father and prove his worth to his father. Shows persistence, and is culturally diverse.
Arrow to the Sun tells the story of a boy who is looking for his father. I think children will enjoy this book because it is different from many other books. It also gives children insight into other cultures and their stories. It was published in 1974.
This Caldecott winner is a Pueblo Indian TL retold by using beautiful shapes and colors that represent the art style used in Pueblo culture. This would be great for a “cultures of America” unit using TL. As a RA, RT, IR, SR, or GR, this book would be a great addition for a bright and diverse classroom library. #UCFLAE3414SP18
Anansi the Spider is a TL of Ashanti background. In it, Anansi sets out on a long journey, and when he falls into trouble, his children must save him. This is a beautiful picture book, which has won the Caldecott Honor, and Lewis Carroll Shelf awards. Some good teaching strategies to use for this book would be RA, S, RT, and CR.
