This is a retelling of a Wasco Indian story about how the constellations were placed in the sky. This is appropriate for the third grade unit study of folktales, the fourth grade unit on Native Americans, or the fifth grade unit on space. It would also be an interesting study of how animals are often presented in legends and folktales. It also includes beautiful illustrations which would enhance the art department's study of creating batik fabric designs. ( )

Based on a Wasco Indian legend, this story tells about the origin of the constellations. This would be a good addition to a nonfiction study of stars and constellations. ( )

In this Native American story, the coyote arranges the stars in the sky to represent all of the animals he lives with. This book tells a Native American belief of how the constellations were formed. This book would be useful for any age learning about Native American beliefs.

The illustrations were bold, colorful, and the animals and scenery seems very calm. This story told of Coyote's trip to the moon and his creation of animal pictures in the night sky by use of his arrows and moving the stars around. I liked that arrows were used to decorate the book throughout as a bow and arrow was a well-used weapon in some Native cultures.
