Denslow in Cherokee

While researching a story, I came across this webpage from Western Carolina University’s Cherokee language program.

It uses the art from W. W. Denslow’s picture book Three Little Kittens, originally published in 1904. Those pictures come with a new Cherokee translation to create a tool for teaching that language to kids today. There are audio and PowerPoint versions, plus videos of classroom discussions and sample handouts.

There’s a similar interpretation of Denslow’s Five Little Pigs.
