Publisher Comments:

Thick clusters of vivid blue flowers, which resemble old-fashioned sunbonnets, cover the Texas hills in the springtime every year. These lovely wild flowers, known by the name of bluebonnet, are the state flower of Texas.

This favorite legend based on Comanche Indian lore, tells the story of how the bluebonnet came to be. Tomie dePaola's powerful retelling and his magnificent full-color paintings perfectly capture the Comanche People, the Texas hills, and the spirit of She-Who-Is-Alone, a little girl who made a sacrifice to save her tribe.

When I was in 1st grade,the librarian told the class to pick out a book to read.I chose "The Legend of the Bluebonnets."What a wonderful story about family, selflessness,and of course,bluebonnets.Its been 29 years since I read this book,but I have never forgotten the story.I think about it at least once a week,(especially during bluebonnet season).I love this book! I can't wait to buy a few and pass them around to the kids in my family!I know when they grow up,they will want to save these books to read to thier children.
