This production offers an engaging, original way for children to learn about a Native American hero. Renowned Abenaki author Bruchac has selected interesting facts that reveal how a young boy is transformed into brave Crazy Horse. Narrator Curtis Zunigha is mesmerizing; he sounds as though he is telling an old story rather than reading a book. Zunigha’s voice is enhanced by Native American music that weaves in and out while light sound effects (such as the sound of hooves and wind) provide further suggestions of scenes that stimulate listeners’ imaginings. The book’s striking illustrations (produced by Sioux artist S.D. Nelson) will draw children in further as they listen with rapt attention. J.C.G.
