Publisher's Summary

Film and TV star Keke Palmer tenderly shares the Ojibwe folk tale of the first dreamcatcher and shows how its message of our connection to the natural world persists to this day. 

Bedtime stories are narrated by the world’s most celebrated voices and written with no beginning, middle, or end so you don’t stay up to hear what happens next. They're interesting enough to give your mind something to focus on, but delivered in a way that encourages sleep.

This title is part of The Audible Sleep Collection, exclusive audio experiences created to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up in the right morning mindset. New and free for members. 

About the author: Linda LeGarde Grover is a member of the Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe and professor of American Indian studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth. She is an author of fiction, poetry, research articles, newspaper columns, and essays. Her publications include The Dance Boots, which received the Flannery O’Connor Award and the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize; The Road Back to Sweetgrass, which received the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers & Storytellers Fiction Award; The Sky Watched: Poems of Ojibwe Lives, which received the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award for Poetry; and her essay collection, Onigamiising: Seasons of an Ojibwe Year, which received the Minnesota Book Award for Creative Nonfiction and Memoir. Linda lives in Duluth, where she was born, and where she is currently researching intersections of traditional Ojibwe stories with regional Ojibwe history and the natural world.

Beautiful Indian Story of the Dreamcatcher

This is one of the most lovely short tales offered by Audible. It's very soothing and descriptive and perfect for bedtime. Appropriate for all ages. I hope to find more stories of the Ojibwe tribe, as I was so touched by this one about the dreamcatcher.

Very effective

I love Keke’s voice. The story lends itself to falling asleep. The subject matter is comforting to me. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants some help falling asleep.

Dreamcatcher did just that!

Keke Palmers vocal deliverance of the story has been the best I’ve ever listen to. The storytellers pitch and voice is so soothing. I have enjoyed falling asleep to this story multiple times. A must audio for those wanting to awake feeling refreshed from a solid sleep.

Very soothing voice

The narrators voice sounds almost like a whisper. I have been listening for 3 nights and I still haven't heard the end of the story which is amazing because I have tried so many other options that haven't worked for me. I definitely recommend listening to this story.

It worked.

I listened to the story but can’t say much about it because I fell asleep. Keke’s voice was perfect. This was the second time I listened to it with the same intended result. I don’t think it was supposed to be a story for storytelling but it was perfect for relaxation and sleep.

Pleasant and educational

Keke's voice is perfect for a relaxing story! Audible should get her to read more bedtime/calming stories. Also, very cool story of the dream catcher!

I loved this!

Soothing, peaceful, and read in a comforting voice. Everything needed for a good bedtime story. I've actually listened to the story twice, because its educational, too!

I guess my expectations were too high.

I think I would've enjoyed this more if I would've read it to myself. Reading style and cadence was off. I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be informational, historical, story-telling-ish or seductive. Sorry Keke.
