Description

Baby Learns About Weather is a board book published by Salina Bookshelf of Flagstaff, Arizona. This bilingual board book is set in the Southwest among the contemporary Navajo Nation. The colourful illustrations by Beverly Blacksheep feature a young Navajo toddler who learns about the kinds of weather that occurs in her everyday life. We see Baby outside her family's hogan (home) playing with her pets. She enjoys all the kinds of weather. We see Baby having fun in the rain, in the sunshine, even when it snows. On a windy day Baby flies her kite and during a sunny day she helps he mother with the laundry. All changes of weather bring wonderful experiences for Baby as she enjoys all types of weather. The final page asks the reader if they find all kinds of weather enjoyable. While the publishers designed the board book to appeal to Navajo preschool and kindergarten-age children, this book will appeal to all young children. This charming book contains Navajo and English text with delightfully simple illustrations by Beverly Blacksheep. The Navajo translation is provided by linguist Peter Thomas. This board book about a young child who experiences the changing weather during the year is an important addition to the limited Native-content board book collection.
