It’s Sunday once again. Time for us to share the books that have called out to us over the past few weeks. Some of the library finds I am sharing here, I have already reviewed a few days back. These books are in keeping with our current bimonthly theme: Goddesses, Faeries, Spirit-Stars and Celestial Beings.
The Orchard Book of Creation Stories retold by Margaret Mayo and illustrated by Louise Brierley and Joy to the World: Christmas Stories and Songs by Tomie dePaola.
The Sun Girl and the Moon Boy: A Korean Folktale bby Yangsook Choi and The Love of Two Stars: A Korean Legend retold and illustrated by Janie Jaehyun Park.
Young Zeus by G. Brian Karas and Saint Francis and the Wolf by Richard Egielski.
Over the Rainbow performed by Judy Collins and Paintings by Eric Puybaret and Blowin’ in the Wind lyrics by Bob Dylan and Jon J Muth.
The Chiru of High Tibet: A True Story by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and illustrated by Linda Wingerter. This book may not really fit into our theme, but I definitely hunted this one down in reference to the course on multicultural children’s literature that I’m teaching in January 2014, as we also discuss protection of animals and the environment.
