Cradle Me by Debby Slier is a cradle shaped board book with photographs of ten beautiful babies from ten different Native tribes, each one engaged in the typical cradle-board activities of smiling, frowning, peeking, yawning, crying, touching, thinking, looking, and more.
Native American mothers have carried their babies in cradle boards for generations, and they are still used by many tribes today. Each cradle board is personalized and they vary from tribe to tribe. Each baby’s tribal identity is noted at the end of the book.
