Little Firefly's story reminds me of Cinderella. A young Indian girl who is basically the maid (and bud of jokes) by her older sister is picked to be the bride of "The Invisible One." Great story for young kids, like an Indian Cinderella which is totally awesome!

Summary:
This Navajo legend tells the tale of how elders took the journey to bring horses unto the native land. A Navajo Boy collects gifts from spirits and under the guidance of his mother, and an appearance from his father, manages to help raise horses to help the Navajo.

Personal Reaction:
Being Native American, I loved this book and the legend behind it. I was reminded of how my grandfather told me legends and raised my cousins and I to be proud of the old stories.

Classroom Extension:
Maybe ask if the kids had any family stories of their own, or if they could bring back any legends from home to share with everyone.

Summary: Was a story about a young Navajo boy who wanted to make life easier for his people. He had asked his mother, the talking Gods of the East, West, North and South, and the Mirage Man.

Personal Reflection: It tells a story that doesn't always have an easy answer to what seems to be an easy question. Life is tough and sometimes, there is no easy solution to a problem.

Classroom Extension:
1. Teach problem solving, finding solutions or courses of action to fix a problem or to make something better.
2. Use to learn about how different cultures live and what their daily lives are like.
