Rabbit Plants the Forest by Deborah L. Duvall
Book DescriptionSuitable for ages 8+, this is an adventure story based on characters from Cherokee tradition, including Ji-Stu (Rabbit) and his friends Otter, Sa-lo-li (Squirrel), and the mysterious Wampus Cat. Ji-Stu, the Messenger for all the animals, is asked by Otter to tell Sa-lo-li it is a good day to plant. Much to his delight, Ji-Stu is invited to help Sa-lo-li plant the hickory nuts, walnuts, pecans, and acorns that will become new trees, keeping the forest thick and beautiful. Ji-Stu and Sa-lo-li only laugh when the elderly squirrel White Oak warns them to watch out for Wampus Cat. Before the planting is done, their laughter turns to fright as they narrowly escape with their lives! Based on the ancient Cherokee teaching that squirrels keep the woods alive and should not be hunted, "Rabbit Plants the Forest" combines Jacob's colour paintings and a blending of Cherokee mythology with scientific facts about animals and their places in our world.
