              Bilingual Edition in English and Caddo Language Tsa Chayah/How The Turtle Got Its Squares is a traditional Caddo Indian story that reaches back through countless generations into the Caddo past in what is now Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma. In those days much of the ente...rtainment and education of Caddos took the form of stories and songs that were passed from generation to generation in the Caddo language. They explained the natural world, history, and moral lessons. In the late 1950s linguist Wallace Chafe met storyteller Sadie Bedoka Weller, recorded this story and transcribed it in an alphabet customized to the sounds of Caddo. In recent generations the Caddo language has fallen almost completely out of use; stories like Tsa Chayah have rested silently in archives and scholarly books. Now the Kiwat Hasinay Foundation has brought the story to life again, with original illustrations by Caddo artist Robin Michelle Montoya. The text is written in Chafes alphabet, and the actual voice of Sadie Bedoka can be heard on a CD that is available to accompany the book. Tsa Chayah, with its bilingual format and CD, helps children read and write English, read and write Caddo, understand and even speak a sample of spoken Caddo. Above all, it brings the wisdom and culture of the past once again into the present and future of the Caddo people. --Alice Anderton, Intertribal Wordpath Society Retold for the first time in print with Caddo language and English text and delightful illustrations, this charming book introduces a story told by generations of Caddo Indian Nation storytellers to capture the imaginations of their children. The story of How The Turtle Got Its Squares will fascinate andentertain new storytellers and their young listeners alike. --Cecile Elkins Carter, Caddo Historian and Storyteller, Author of Caddo Indians: Where We Come From

The stories, characters and adventures are based in a time where animals roamed a Kingdom named Animarian. But these animals were not as we know the...m today. From a time long forgotten these animals walked and talked like we humans do today. From a medieval setting this book joins the story at the point of two young white tigers that are thrown into a quest and adventure to save a kingdom they did not even realize they lived in and did not know about. They learn many truths about themselves and those around them that they thought they knew. Facing their fears, confronting new unexpected challenges and succeeding against all odds are just some of the elements they must face.
