    One thought on “Jóhonaa’éí: Bringer of Dawn”

    1. In this book the text is both in English and Navajo on every page. Johonaa'ei, the sun, gently rises and wakes up the nature, animals, and people of the desert. Then it shows a traditional Navajo morning prayer. Based on Debbie Reese's guide, this would probably be considered an appropriate American Indian text to share with children because it is tribe specific, includes an author note with specific information, and does not portray the Navajo people in any degrading manner, while authentically [...]

    2. This book depicts a desert scene with nature waking up from the sun, Johonaa'ei. It is lovely with great pictures of the animals all working together in harmony, and eventually a Native American family is awoken and begins their day with a thankful prayer. It is a great cultural book that young children can enjoy and will be able to gain understanding about the Native American culture in an easy way.

    3. This is a work of both fable and realistic fiction as the fable of the sun awakening is told as a part of the realistic human interaction with the morning rituals. Bringer of Dawn walks the reader through the morning as the Sun wakes up all the living creatures in the desert, and finally the humans awaken and preform a traditional Native American morning ritual. This book is written in both Navaho and English.

    4. My little one loved the bright, bold illustrations in this one. A nice counterpart for all the going-to-bed books out there. Should have prominently stated somewhere that it was in Navajo and English (I only found it after looking in the Library of Commerce info). Also wish it had given info on how to pronounce Jóhonaa’éí.

    5. This is a good children's book. The illustrations are colorful (Ryan Singer) and it's just a great story.
