The Otter, the Spotted Frog & the Great Flood: A Creek Indian Story
Although I read many books about different cultures and beliefs, this book was like nothing else I’ve read before. This book is from a Native American story that was told by the Georgia Creek Indians. I thought the story felt a little scary and I really didn’t like when the buffalo kept throwing the frog into the fire and I found it confusing that the creatures never died and instead became other things instantly. I’ve read about how when something dies it can become a part of something else in nature, but these things became the other creature right away. I did like that the otter loved his wife even when she was a mosquito and that he didn’t care what she looked like, but I don’t know how he could love her when she kept biting him and made him sick. I think that it was good that otter did what he wanted even when the others didn’t believe him, but I don’t know why he trusted the frog.
