Audible Editor Reviews

A seemingly fatherless young boy searches for his dad, but must prove his worthiness in a series of trials before he can find him. Caldecott Medalist Gerald McDermott retells this ancient Pueblo story in a calm yet energetic style, with wind instruments, keyboards, and nature sounds playing alongside his words. Children using the app version will enjoy watching McDermott's colorful, geometric scenes move by while they listen to the simple but powerful tale. A nice way to teach children about the importance of overcoming challenges.

Publisher's Summary

This Pueblo Indian myth explains how the spirit of the Lord of the Sun was brought to the world of men.

    Story
    "The background music too loud, blank part too long"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Story is good legend, but the presentation would have been better if an older, Native American voice would have been used.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The legend was written well, but it would have been nice to hear the happenings during the four trials.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It should have been a native American elder's voice.


    Was Arrow to the Sun worth the listening time?

    It was an interesting legend.


    Any additional comments?

    I am having trouble getting a native American elder with a gravelly voice do my book, Kokopelli: Dream Catchers of an Ancient. I hope to find that man or woman that can convey that special rendition.
