Lump Lump and the Blanket of Dreams Inspired by Navajo Culture and Folklore
"Now we will weave a blanket of dreams. May the white light of morning beautify this blanket. May the red light of evening beautify this blanket. May the falling rain beautify this blanket. May the rainbow beautify this blanket. May everyone sleep in beauty under a blanket of dreams. May everyone sleep in beauty! May everyone sleep in beauty!”
Winter is coming, but the little black bear, Lump Lump, isn't ready to go to sleep! With the help of his mother, the wise Blue Bird, and his forest friends, Lump Lump gathers materials for Spider Woman to weave him a Blanket of Dreams. Inspired by Navajo/Diné culture and folklore, and featuring the work of famed weaver Barbara Teller Ornelas, this beautiful tale of family and friends takes the reader on a journey through the spectacular traditions and landscapes of the Southwest.
