Book Overview

Illus. in full color. This story of how the Rainbow Crow lost his sweet voice and brilliant colors by bringing the gift of fire to the other woodland animals is "a Native American legend that will be a fine read-aloud because of the smooth text and songs with repetitive chants. The illustrations, done in a primitive style, create a true sense of the Pennsylvania Lenape Indians and their winters."-- School Library Journal.

Before you shoo that next crow this!!

The Rainbow Crow is a beautiful native legend describing how the crow acquired his characteristics. Being a teacher I found this book an excellent way to teach children about "not judging others(mainly on their appearance) without knowing the whole story". In today's society the crow is thought to be loud, ugly and annoying to humans. This book helps us to see that everything has it's place in life, and that appearance can be more than just beauty or ugliness. The Rainbow Crow helps us to see the price the beautiful rainbow coloured, song-like voiced bird risked everything he had (without thought for himself) to save the earth's environment. I love all animals, and think that this story personifies the idea of all creatures having a role in the world ecosystem. Perhaps we as humans should look at the "Rainbow Crow" as a role model to help save our environment regardless of the cost.A great read for adults and children alike!!!
