Available in paperback only.  Marijo Moore (Cherokee), The Cherokee Little People. 2000, by Emma Shaw-Smith.

An elderly Cherokee couple work in their cornfields, planting the corn, harvesting the corn, and cooking the corn. One season, there’s just too much corn to harvest, and the crows are threatening to steal it all. So while her husband is gone, the Cherokee Little People come out, sing a song to make the old woman go to sleep, and harvest all the corn for the couple. In gratitude for their help, the couple leaves an offering of cornbread and tiny moccasins. Cherokee Little People is a delightful little story about generosity and reciprocity.
