Whirlwind is a Spirit Dancing is an anthology of poems based on traditional Native American songs and stories from different tribes across North America. Collected by the renowned poet, historian, and folklorist Natalia Belting, the poems are rich in vivid imagery, showing how Native Americans creatively interpret the wonders of the natural world. Piquing children's inherent curiosity, the poems encourage an imaginative exploration of the world around them. The lavish, dramatic illustrations and decorative motifs by Leo and Diane Dillon are perfect complements to the fascinating text. The Dillons are winners of two Caldecott Medals and multiple Boston Globe-Horn Book and Coretta Scott King awards.
