Coyote at the Big Time: A California Indian 123 (Board Books)
The follow-up to Heyday's best-selling A Is for Acorn takes young readers to a Native California Big Time, with Coyote as their guide. Counting from one clapperstick up to ten stars twinkling above the gathering, Coyote explores indigenous cultural traditions, including songs, dances, hand games, art--and, of course, delicious food. Lyn Risling's beautiful illustrations depict the diversity of traditions that continue to thrive throughout the state. At once a fun introduction to numbers and a celebration of community, this lively counting book shows babies and toddlers how to take in the beautiful world around them.
