CONTENT: NOTE: I had not realized that Ms Wood died in 2013-grab all of her books possible-no one did Southwestern lore, poetry, stories like her. Inspired by the indigenous creation myths, Nancy Wood's fanciful tale is brought to life with rich, humorous paintings by Rebecca Walsh. A long time ago, when everything was new, the Tiny People lived in the Center of the Earth. It was hot and crowded. "Let's get out of here, " says the smallest and boldest of the Tiny People under the earth. But it's not until a star crashes into the ground that they first see the blue sky above-and each other-and dare to crawl up a cornstalk into a strange, scary world. Terrified but curious, the wee folk hitch rides with Eagle, Turtle, and Bear, who advise them to rise above the earth, take their time, and be strong, just like them. Other creatures show how to build a home and find food. And sure enough, after many seasons, the Tiny People grow as tall as young trees and are ready to kick up their heels and celebrate with all the animal friends who have taught them life skills.
