Rabbit's Snow Dance: A Traditional Iroquois Story

Rabbit's Snow Dance Master storytellers Joseph and James Bruchac present a hip and funny take on an Iroquois folktale about the importance of patience, the seasons, and listening to your friends. Pair it with other stories about stubborn animals like Karma Wilson's Bear Wants More and Verna Aardema's Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears. Rabbit loves the winter. He knows a dance, using an Iroquois drum and song, to make it snow--even in summertime! When rabbit decides that it should snow early, he starts his dance and the snow begins to fall. The other forest animals are not happy and ask him to stop, but Rabbit doesn't listen. How much snow is too much, and will Rabbit know when to stop? The father-son duo behind How Chipmunk Got His Stripes, Raccoon's Last Race, and Turtle's Race with Beaver present their latest retelling of Native American folklore.
"The telling is sprightly, and Newman's ink-and-watercolor artwork makes an ideal companion. An appealing addition to folktale shelves." --
Booklist "This modern retelling maintains [the Bruchacs'] solid reputation for keeping Native American tales fresh." --School Library Journal "The picturesque language makes it a pleasure to read aloud."--BCCB
