"Knots on a Counting Rope" is a miracle of children's literature. The main character is a young American Indian boy who is blind, and the story is told via a conversation between the Boy and his Grandfather about Boy's birth, growth, strength, learning and empowerment, preparing him to become an independent young man who will not always have his Grandfather around. If it isn't clear by that description, the story depicts the type of issues that are pertinent to a child with a handicap, who lives a minority lifestyle - "on the Rez", and close to nature. It respectfully depicts a flavor of Native culture, weaving teachings about the continuity of birth, life and death, with teachings about how we develop important skills for living, and the value of how we tell our story.

The illustrations are nothing short of remarkable, each page a beautiful painting saturated with light and dark and a muted palette that conjures mystery, imagination and reverence to match the dialogue. The dialogue, is honest, slow, filled with emptiness, and echoes of poetry.

Based upon its length, this book is for elementary age children. I am going to try it with my preschoolers and will report if it holds their attention.

Our son is having his first child. We asked him about his favorite books from childhood. (We had 5 children and at least 200 children's books). He remembered 6 books and this was one of them. This book teaches compassion to those who are not disabled, and courage to those that are. We remember it with fondness.

I chose this rating for three reasons. First, I love reading of Native American culture as my mother always spoke of the wisdom of Native Americans. Also, Ted Rand is my favorite illustrators. He truly brings a story to life. Lastly, I love the theme of grandchild and grandparent. My own children were very close to my mother. My daughter just adopted a little girl who is part Native American and I thought this book would make a memorable gift.

I love this book. It tells a good story. I also received the paper version so it can be read as a two person story. Seller was quick to ship books and included extra books to share.
