Kali's Song by Jeanette Winter

Kali is sent out to hunt, like the other men in his family.  But he finds a new use for his bow...

Schwartz & Wade sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can find a copy at your local bookstore.

Kali is a musician, not a hunter.  While the others hunt mammoths and other prey, he sits on a hill in the moonlight and "plays" his bow.  His music is so pretty the stars come closer for a look.

This is a sweet story filled with beautiful illustrations.  I especially like the artist's use of handmade paper to make the illustrations look 3D.

This is a nicely put together story that should touch the heart of any child who is musically inclined or artistic in any form.

Happy reading.
