Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
This is an appealing collection of 13 Full Moon stories, from the "Moon When the Snow Blows Like Spirits in the Wind" to the "Moon of Popping Trees." Grandpa Iron, a Northern Arapaho Medicine Man, tells his lively grandchildren short inspirational tales that focus on different aspects of nature, such as water or plants, and shows us how each should be respected and appreciated. After the tales, the second half of the book offers 13 related "Experiences," that include activities and suggestions for integrating the lessons learned from the tales into everyday life. Dream-like black and white paintings illustrate the tales, while realistic black and white drawings accompany the Experiences. The author's preface, introduction, conclusion and his often humorous, first-person introductions and endings to each tale help bring ancient wisdom to some of the environmental problems of today. Includes a brief bibliography.
