Sky Tellers - The myths, the Magic, and the Mysteries of the Universe

The SkyTellers package is no longer available to purchase. However, two of the stories are available online for free, including Constellations chapter and the Solar System chapter (including the "The Creation of the Earth" and the science story).

The Native American stories intentionally are presented without any graphics. Program facilitators are encouraged to invite the children to close their eyes and use their imaginations as the starscape moves slowly overhead. The science stories have a few, carefully selected, illustrations to help the children understand the concepts presented.
