This is a beautiful book. Here's the synopses given in the front cover of the book:
"This stirring parable promotes a deeper understanding of ourselves, the earth and our relationship with all beings...In this powerful tale, the world echoes with argument and confusion--until Old Turtle speaks. With quiet eloquence, she reminds all creatures of our connection to God, to the earth and to one another."This book is fast becoming one of my favorites. Appropriate for all ages. Great discussion starter. Check it out, purchase for your own library; whatever--just read it!
