The Brave Birch

El Arbedul Valiente
(2021)
Written by David Q. Hall
Illustrated by Belinda Cohen

Some mornings are so beautiful that you just have to sing and make a happy noise.

 

Long, long ago a little bird did that and got picked on by a mean bully. No one seemed to be able to help…until a brave birch tree came to the rescue.

And birch trees have never been the same since.

It’s been over a half century since the author first heard this magical tale from Native people of North America.  Ojibwa children enjoyed this story in their forest homes, the author enjoyed it as a young man, and now you can enjoy it, too!

When the Owl Calls for You
Cuando el Búho te Llama

(2021)
Written by David Q. Hall
Illustrated by Belinda Cohen

Owls are amazing birds. 

Did you ever think of an owl, hooting in the night, as scary, or even something bad?

In many Native American tribes owls hooting were considered a “bad omen,” a signal that something bad was going to happen. Some even believed that they were a symbol of death.

This is the story of one Native American child who feared that the owl was calling for her.
