Review:

Native American folklore uses animals in stories to teach life lessons. M. Jane Holt, descendant of the Paumkey tribe of Virginia, has drawn on her Native American heritage in writing her second children s book, Eaglet and Crow Woman, to teach a lesson that kindness to strangers in need is a responsibility not a choice. In the aftermath of a great storm, Eaglet lies injured on the forest floor. Not knowing what else to do the forest animals take Eaglet to Crow Woman, a Native American woman who talks to the animals. However, when they arrive Crow Woman is not home. The farm animals that live with Crow Woman take responsibility for the care of Eaglet until Crow Woman gets back from herb gathering. Days of caring turn into weeks before Crow Woman finally returns. Ms. Holt has written a story to teach children about love, kindness and caring because We must as the farm animals say. As we all must care for one another if we are to soar to greater heights. While not designed to be a coloring book, the beautiful black and white illustrations of Erin Lore, make one want to get out a box of colored pencils and spend a lazy afternoon coloring away. Which makes this book a perfect gift for any child age 2 to 92. --Reviewed by Diana Fields

I was given "Tmmy the Dragon" and Eaglet and the Crow Woman" to review. After reading them I realized that Mary Jane Holt-Emmons, is relating to us a message. That we are all connected. In "Timmy and the Dragon" the Grandmother believes in her Grandson and his imagination. She makes him a dragon costume because he believes he is a dragon. In the end Timmy not only believes he is a dragon but he his all that is good and wonderful. This believing in her Grandson strengthens not only the bond between them, but builds in Timmy the strength to believe in himself. In the "Eaglet and the Crow Woman", the Eaglet has fallen out of his nest. All animal wild and domestic, care for him until the Crow Woman comes back and finishes restoring Eaglet back to perfect health. In Native America Tradition, the eagle is very significant. It is the symbol of vision. Both far away and near. These stories should remind us that we all need each other, that we are not put here on this earth to go through this life alone. --Michele Clayton, spiritual advisor
