In a compelling audiovisual production of their Caldecott Medal-winning picture book, the Indigenous author/narrator and illustrator team of Carole Lindstrom and Michaela Goade encourage young listeners to become stewards of the Earth. “Water is sacred.” An Indigenous child takes her grandmother’s words to heart as she boldly encounters the “black snake” that threatens her community’s water resources and fragile connections with nature. A captivating musical score and natural sound effects such as flowing water complement Lindstrom’s narration. Pauses for page-turns allow listeners time to admire Goade’s stunning illustrations. However, significantly more time is needed to appreciate these magical watercolors fully. The artwork provides an essential visual context for the narrative, dramatically enhancing the overall experience. Back matter includes author and illustrator notes and the Earth Steward and Water Protector Pledge. S.A.A. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
