The Cloud Artist: A Choctaw Tale

Illustrated by:
White dots coming from a girls hands and connecting with a cloud

Born with the gift of painting with the clouds, Leona, a little Choctaw girl, uses the sky as her canvas to the delight of her people. When a traveling man learns of her gift and invites her to join the carnival, the Cloud Artist must make a decision about what kind of artist she wants to be.  This picture book is part historical fiction, a lot of fantasy, and a little dab of tall tale. Over thirty follow-up activities are available on author's website.   In English with Choctaw translation included.
