The Legend of the Bluebonnet

Everyone loves a good legend or folktale. This book hits home for me since I was born and raised in Texas. I remember reading this book back when I was in fourth grade years ago. It teaches selflessness even to the young.

A tribe of Native Americans are living in a drought. They have lost many to famine due to lack of water for the land they call home. It takes the courage and selflessness of a little girl who has no one except herself and her favorite doll to bring hope to her people. She gives up the one thing, the one treasure, the one comfort she has in o519n6FCUp5L._SX404_BO1,204,203,200_rder to save everyone in her tribe. And through her selflessness, bluebonnets sprout and the rain comes. The Legend of the Bluebonnet is a favorite of all who live in Texas!
