Little One’s eyes are round and his mouth open as he and his cousins listen to stories told by their grandmother. Stories about Coyote and Roadrunner, Turkey and Turtle, and exciting tales from the Mimbres world are shared with delight. Tall Boy was attacked by a bear. Little One was almost bitten by a rattlesnake. A mountain lion is high up in a tree, watching Sleeps Too Much. Grandmother helps the village children develop their creativity and imaginations, connect to their history, their traditions, their families, and each other through stories. The children learn good character traits and cultural values through stories that will be told and retold, passing them down through generations. In this story the Mimbres children learn to take responsibility to tell their own amazing stories. This is the sixth book in a series to teach good character traits. Teachers, librarians, parents, and children of all ages will enjoy this pictorial narrative.
