Multicultural Childrens Book – The Legend of the Blue Bonnet

multi cultural kids booksThe babe has been on this roll of bringing back multicultural childrens books from school. This week he got  The Legend of the Bluebonnet. Its a beautiful story of a sacrifice by a young child that ends up saving her people. Its a Native American story, and it was a good way to introduce the babe to the concept of Native Americans, and how they were the original inhabitors of this land and how the rest of us are all immigrants. Parts of the story deals with death and were difficult, and I had to explain drought and famine to him, which I saw was bothering him at night when he went to sleep. But a beatutiful, simple story – certainly worth getting from the library.

The amazon link is The Legend of the Bluebonnet
