This traditional Cherokee creation story takes place during a time when animals did many of the things that people can do. When the earth was young, the animals lived on a rock above it, and the earth was covered in water. The animals needed more room, but where could they find it? This book retells the delightful Cherokee tale of how the earth was created while teaching the invaluable lesson that even the smallest creature can make a difference. Written in both Cherokee and English, the book will familiarize readers with the syllabary and the Cherokee language.
