Knots on a Counting Rope
Author(s): Bill Martin, Jr., John Archambault

In Knots on a Counting Rope, Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault tell a poignant story about a boy’s emerging confidence in facing his blindness in this beautiful children’s picture book illustrated by Ted Rand.

By the warmth of a campfire beneath a starry night sky, a Navajo youth named Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses listens to the tale of his birth from his grandfather. Although blind, the boy learns that he has the strength to cope with his condition and meet any challenge that comes his way.

“The powerful, spare, poetic text is done full justice by Rand’s fine full-color illustrations…The love, hope, and courage expressed are universal.”— Booklist (starred review)



Review(s):
“A rich tale of intergenerational love and respect.... It is a moving collaborative effort that reverberates long after the book is closed.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
