A Rainbow at Night is a lively collection of art by Navajo children. Their imaginative paintings and drawings introduce readers to their world. Through their eyes readers will learn about some of the special traditions of Navajo life--while discovering the universality shared by children of all backgrounds. Here we meet Earl who describes the importance of the desert landscape in Navajo; Valerie who talks about traditional Navajo art and rug weaving; and Vanessa who warns about watching too much TV! The images are accompanied by photographic portraits of the artists and personal descriptions of their work. In addition, Bruce Hucko offers further insight into the Navajo culture and suggests art projects relating to each image that invite children of all ages and cultures to get out their art materials and create!
The images in this book are part of a larger exhibit of Navajo children's art entitled "Have You Ever Seen a Rainbow at Night?" First exhibited at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, New Mexico and in Native People's Magazine, the exhibit is currently touring the United States.

Bruce Hucko is an independent photographer and arts educator. Known to the children as an "art coach," Bruce spent ten years living and working on a Navajo Reservation as an Artist in Education with the Utah Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. He currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he works on projects concerning the arts, indigenous peoples, and the environment. Read about the inspiration behind Bruce's work.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-7. After teaching, or "coaching," art in various Navajo communities in Utah for 10 years, Hucko helped put together an exhibition called "Have You Ever Seen a Rainbow at Night?" in which Navajo children expressed themselves through graphic arts and words. This book presents 23 full-color reproductions of drawings and paintings from the collection, along with a black-and-white photo of each artist, his or her comments about the picture, Hucko's introduction to themes found in each piece of art, and ideas for readers to think about or draw. This is a rich collection of the work of very talented children (ages 6-13) that will appeal to many ages. Younger children will enjoy it best with adult direction, but all will gain insight into the artists' world and appreciation of their creative talents. A unique addition to any collection.?Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
