Just what I was looking for! And a rare find, too. I paired the book with a small dreamcatcher for a special gift.
The illustrations are colorful and beautiful, the text is as sparse as it needs to be but enough for the age of my gift recipient.
Brought this book for my grand daughter who just received a dream catcher for a present. Her dad read the book with her and helped her understand the Indian meaning of the legend. Highly recommend!! Beautiful story.
I bought this to read my kindergarten unit on Native Americans. The story is very poetic so it was a little over their heads, but the pictures were fun for them to look at.
Purchased this out of print book for my grand children. The book was in excellent condition as described. The book is one of my favorites.
I am only giving this book a 3 start not because the book wasn't good, I don't know, because I returned it. I was looking for more of the " History on Dream Catchers", and this book does go there but it is very expensive and looks more like a child's first hard back book. Now if I had grandchildren I may have kept it for them when they were older. The book came with the price sticker on it, think it said 11.00 but I paid 40.00! Not exactly the change amount but enough for me to say NO thanks.
Great book, gift for my grandsons.
Great little book to read aloud with your kids. Beautiful illustrations that my children loved to looking at. They asked me to read it over and over.
On the Ojibwa Islands of the Great Lakes many people wove nets to protect their babies from harmful dreams. They would weave a dream net on a willow hoop. It would look just like a spider web but the net would be woven of twine. Then they stained it red with the juice from the berries. They believed that this would catch the bad dreams like almost like a spider web catches flies. Then the good dreams would drift through the hole in the center of the dream catcher. The parents always told the children to try to dream and try to remember what they dream. They did this because the believed that every dream had a meaning. If you had a bad dream it was though that something bad was going to happen to you or your family. If you had a good dream it was thought that something good was going to happen. I didn't really enjoy this book because it didn't really grab my attention. It had a good story and legend behind it but the way they explained it didn't interest me. I would recommend this book though if you want to find out the meaning behind a dream catcher. ~ Katelyn Carson
