Frog Brings Rain

frogbringsrainAGES 5-8: Patricia Hruby Powell retells a folktale that she first read in Frances Newcomb’s Navajo Folktales. This lively tale was kept alive by traditional oral storytelling and has been saved for future generations in a written version.

While numerous Indian folktales have been told in print, this book has a unique variation. With the help of Navajo scholar Peter Thomas, the text of the story is written in both English and Navajo. Children will enjoy seeing the Navajo writing as they read the story of the frog that saved the mountain and summoned the rain.  —Serina Culleton
