    1. Charming. I'm not usually a fan of 'origin stories' but this reads more like a fable, which I do like. Pictures are lovely (though animal-people wearing leather loincloths and skirts seems a bit odd). Several useful appendices for students.

    2. This is a lovely treat for anyone who collects illustrated children's books or just for a good read to young'uns. Using the tale of two bear cubs who don't listen to mama bear, this retelling of the Miwok Indian legend provides beautiful pictures and a tale of caution.When Mother Grizzly Bear (wearing a beaded necklace) tells her young cubs to find some berries, they end up doing something else, which gets them stuck on top of Tutokanula, known to us as El Capitan in Yosemite. It is then up to v [...]

    3. The Native American children’s folktale picturebook, Two Bear Cubs: A Miwok Legend from California’s Yosemite Valley is written and illustrated by the San Souci brothers. The author is Robert D. San Souci and the illustrator is Daniel San Souci. This book is intended for the primary age group, but the intermediate and advanced age groups can also learn from book’s message. The book was named one of the best picturebooks of 1997 by the San Francisco Chronicle; however, it didn’t win any a [...]

    4. Wonderful re-telling of an ancient tale about El Capitan, called Tu-tok-a-nu-la (Measuring Worm Stone) by the Miwok. The watercolors are beautiful. Also noteworthy is how the Miwok words were seamlessly woven throughout the text in a very natural manner. Excellent author's notes and references are in the back.

    5. Was the purpose of this legend simply to explain El Capitan? Or are there other messages? I think of this tale as one that celebrates diversity. Each type of animal has a skill or ability that none of the others has. Even the tiny measuring worm has a unique ability that saves the lives of two bear cubs.

    6. Totally loved this story!! Love everything about Yosemite so when I saw this one in our library it jumped off the shelf at me. Very cute story about mama bear and her two cubs!!
