Begay, Shirley M., Ed.
Designed to provide culturally relevant and interesting reading material in Navajo for Navajo speaking children, this booklet presents 20 short stories written and illustrated by students at Rough Rock Demonstration School. Intended to encourage Navajo speaking children, and others, to read and to instill pride in being a Navajo, the stories pertain to the children's experience at home. The short stories, given in English and Navajo, cover such topics as horses, the seasons of spring and summer, the family, the rodeo, home, herding sheep, weaving a rug, and the student's surrounding environment.
