L’Envol de L’Aube: Un Récit Lakota

Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: Preschool; Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Il y a très longtemps, quand un grand déluge lava le monde de ses malheurs, le Grand-Père envoya l’aigle Wanjblí pour sauver un membre vertueux de la race humaine et lui enseigner comment bien vivre. L’aigle est un puissant symbole de courage, de sagesse et de force. Il est connu dans la culture autochtone comme le lien entre le monde de l’esprit et la Terre. Dans son premier livre, Kevin partage le récit traditionnel de l’aigle qui est venu comme messager pour guider le genre humain. Il partage une vision inspirante d’unité et d’espoir pour qu’une nouvelle génération d’enfants apprenne à reconnaître l’aigle en eux-mêmes et chez les autres afin de toujours s’éloigner des ténèbres et voler vers la lumière.
