Pedersen ( Out in the Country ; The Yellow Button ) incorporates some Native American motifs in mixed media illustrations, but the results are sometimes stilted and do not consistently express the power and spirit of the evocative poems here. From School Library Journal.
Native Americans regard night as a time for healing. Nighttime calls for sleep magic. John Bierhorst has assembled this unique assortment of sleep charms and poems from many different traditions (identified in a supplementary glossary). Fifty-one poems dispel fear, inspire good fortune, and just bring on a good night's sleep.
A collection of Native American night poems, sleep charms, and other special night songs intended to soothe, heal, bring dreams, or make sleep irresistible. Bierhorst, John; Pedersen, Judy, illustrator. No page number in the book.
Kudos for the list of sources, noted in very abbreviated form but commendably legible. List of tribes and cultures. How gratifying to have one of Bierhorst's peerless anthologies in picture-book format: 50-odd lullabies, night songs, and prayers of peoples from the Arctic to Paraguay, arranged in thematic groups showing how various cultures have celebrated the beauty and mystery of sunset, the heavenly bodies, night creatures, and the sacred darkness in which the Creator moves.
