There is a Native Legend about the bluebonnets that bloom all over Texas in the Spring. I purchased this book for my sister to accompany some tea towels that have bluebonnet embroidered on them. She wasn't aware of the book, but I, being a librarian, have shared it with many students who came into my school's library. I planted seeds in a pot and the students watched the progress of sprouting, growth, and blooming of the flowers. Bluebonnets are the Texas State Flower and bloom all over the state in the spring. The book is beautiful.
This was one of my FAVORITE books as a child. My mother read it to me and I read it to my daughter. I purchased this book to read to a friend's children while they are here visiting. I grew up in Texas, and Texan's have a lot of state pride! It's not only about bluebonnets and the state of Texas, but the strength and courage of a little girl and her Native American culture as well as the overall caring nature for her community.
I read this book when I was a child in elementary school. I’m now in my early 30s. I love the sacrifice this sweet child made for her people and I happen to believe that it’s more than a legend and rooted in truth. That this event indeed happen. I’m Native American Cherokee myself on my dad’s side. This book is so touching and wholesome and I’ll hold on to it for life. It’s that good.
This is one of my favorite books and as a kindergarten teacher in Texas we learn about Native Americans and the geography. I love the bluebonnets here. This book is a beautiful story about a Native American girl who sacrificed her favorite object for rain to help her nation (tribe). It's one of my favorites and my students love it as well.
I read this book as a little girl and it was such an amazing story that when I had children I read it to them, and now I’m starting to have grandchildren and I buy this book for each of them. Such a beautiful story and wonderfully written. Definitely a book to add to any child’s collection!
