Lovely children's art, thought provoking

This is a wonderful book--a collection of art made by Navajo children along with pictures and quotes from the kids who made them. There is also a bit of narrative to give "food for thought" for that picture AND questions to pose to a child. For example, one artwork is of a snake. The girl artist talks about how she saw a snake down through the metal grate of her porch and it inspired this piece. The narrative talks about Navajo beliefs about the powers that animals possess. The questions at the bottom ask the child viewer/artist: what wild animals live in your backyard? If it had a special power in nature, what would it be? Draw the animal and pattern it with a design you find around your home. Write a story about that animal...etc. Very creative book...
