The promise basket by Bill Richardson( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A stone when it's thrown can damage, can break, but nothing can shatter the promise I make." So begins the poem a mother writes on a scrap of paper. She wraps the paper around a stone and places it in a basket to give to her daughter on her first birthday. They are poor, but the mother is determined that gifts will be given when gifts need giving. She keeps her promise, and the Promise Basket, too. Every time there is a need for gifts, the mother finds a pretty stone to tie up with paper and ribbon, and gives it to her daughter in the basket. She continues the tradition over the years until her daughter has a baby of her own... The love between a mother and her daughter is celebrated in this lyrical story from Bill Richardson, featuring colorful illustrations by Slavka Kolesar."--

Ce conte, inspiré de la tradition amérindienne, est une épopée empreinte de magie qui témoigne de la fascination des Premières Nations pour le carcajou, mystérieux et féroce animal des forêts du nord du Canada. Castor est inquiet. Une sombre présence plane sur le village, triste et abandonné. C'est le Grand Carcajou, l'Esprit maléfique de la Forêt, qui terrorise les habitants. Quand celui-ci s'empare du petit Yuma, Castor et Corbeau viendront prêter main-forte à la grand-mère du garçon pour combattre Carcajou et sauver l'enfant. Or, la vieille femme possède des pouvoirs bien surprenants ... Les trois compagnons parviendront-ils à chasser la créature malfaisante? Magnifiquement illustré, ce conte traditionnel déné est une célébration de la nature et des rapports qui nous y unit, une histoire d'entraide et de courage qui émerveillera les jeunes lecteurs

In Africa, during a terrible famine, all the animals gather around a special tree that still has fruit, but it's too tall and can't be climbed. If they speak the tree's name, it will share its fruit, so several animals go to ask a wise man on top of a mountain. He knows the name, but by the time the animals return to the tree, they can't remember it!
