Book Overview

In Knots on a Counting Rope, Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault tell a poignant story about a boy's emerging confidence in facing his blindness in this beautiful children's picture book illustrated by Ted Rand.

By the warmth of a campfire beneath a starry night sky, a Navajo youth named Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses listens to the tale of his birth from his grandfather. Although blind, the boy learns that he has the strength to cope with his condition and meet any challenge that comes his way.

The powerful, spare, poetic text is done full justice by Rand's fine full-color illustrations.The love, hope, and courage expressed are universal.-- Booklist (starred review)

   As a longtime teacher, I always loved this story. I puchased it for my newly adopted Native American granddaughter.
For three reasons, I chose this rating : First I love reading the Native American culture, as my mother spoke always of the wisdom of the Native Americans. Ted Rand is also one of my favorite illustrators. He brings a story to life truly. Lastly, I love the theme of the grandchild and the great grandfather. My daughter adopted a little girl who is part Native American and I thought that this book would make a memorable gift.

   Not satisfied
This is not suitable for young children. The language I am feeling is too difficult for children to understand without adult assistance. I just couldn t understand Hell. Disappointed '' :

   Wonderful book!
An adult should read it to a child better. The child may have dry eyes after hearing the story, but the reader won 't.
