Muskrat Will Be Swimming

Muskrat Will Be Swimming

MUSKRAT WILL BE SWIMMING, by Cheryl Savageau, is a quiet tale of a Native American girl who, with gentle guidance from her grandfather, learns to find strength, not fear, in her identity as a Native person living in an Anglo society. Beautifully illustrated and complete with a Seneca creation story, Muskrat Will Be Swimming demonstrates how the ancient stories of Native American cultures are used to help today’s children find their way in the world. It is a treasure for all who have ever dealt with the fear of being different.
