Brilliant paintings enfold Wolkstein's retelling of an Australian Aboriginal creation myth. 2. In spare, rhythmic words, veteran folklorist Wolkstein retells an Aboriginal Australian creation myth that begins "when the earth was asleep.

Brilliant paintings enfold Wolkstein's retelling of an Australian Aboriginal creation myth. Awakened by a voice, Sun Mother leaves her home in the sky and travels the sleeping earth as grass, plants, and trees sprout in her footsteps. When a "soft voice" tells Sun Mother that it's time, she travels to Earth, leaving a wide path of lush greenery and vibrant animal life in her footsteps. Returning to the sky, she continues to pass over Earth in cycles of light that become day and night.

  • Excellent delivery. Fantastic story. Thanks

  • I recently read this story to my 1st grade class and they were enraptured. The story takes us through the stages of the world being quiet and dark and then changing with the arrival of Sun Mother. We discussed if Sun Mother was the Sun or just lived in the Sun. The art work is evocative, the story fluid, and the Creation well laid out. Viewing the creation of the moon and north star, plants, animals, and finally people will enrich the imagination of any reader. Great to read to children of any age, this book belongs on the shelf with the highest quality Creation stories.
