Kunu's Basket is a very special story from Lee DeCora Francis, who teaches at the elementary school on Indian Island in Maine, home of the Penobscot Indian Nation. Kunu's first tries at making a basket are frustrating, but he's not a quitter and his grandfather helps him realize that it's going to take quite a few tries to get it right. This is a contemporary Native American story that explores themes common to all children: difficulty attempting a new task; wanting to do something "by myself"; and learning to be patient enough to try again and again before getting it right. It truly should delight not only young children, but people of all ages.

Native American Baskets will be on display compliments of Home and Away Galleries. David will have many more baskets at the gallery  for you to look at and to purchase....treat yourself to a stroll through the gallery.
