The Goat in the Rug.
Blood, Charles L.; Link, Martin
Based on the activities of the real Window Rock weaver, Glenmae, and her goat, Geraldine, this illustrated story incorporates authentic details relative to the Navajo art of rug weaving and is designed for children aged four to eight. Capitalizing on the humor inherent in Geraldine's point of view, the story centers on the goat's observation of Glenmae as she goes about the art of developing a rug. The activities described in this story include: shearing the goat for its wool; gathering plants for dye; spinning and dyeing the wool; and weaving a pattern that will never be duplicated. (JC)
