About “The Great Ball Game”
Adapted by Rebecca Sheir and illustrated by Ojibwe Woodland artist Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley, "The Great Ball Game” is inspired by Native American tales about a dispute between the animals and the birds over who is best. The two sides decide to settle their dispute via a game. When a tiny creature named Bat arrives, all participants learn the value of diversity and celebrating those who seem "different." The accompanying activities and prompts encourage children to develop their own storytelling skills.
