Susan Andra Lion's marvelous tale about camping with a group of girls and the accompanying tale of trees, nature and also the relationship of living things within a forest ecosystem. Learn how Mother Earth gave the trees their own special and unique voice in this highly visual story book that not only presents a fascinating story that children, teens and adults will all enjoy. This highly engaging book also tells a second story about animals, plants, birds, and the Earth itself. Children will learn about the integrated way in which Earth's inhabitants live in relationship to each other, and learn the value of respect for each form of life. The unique and marvelous book helps its readers to regard their world as a complex tapestry of life and living things.
Readers will be delighted by the thumbnail descriptions which surround the outside of each page, inviting them in and helping them learn about the world of the forest. This medium of a two-level story creates a unique, shared experience between children and the people who read to them because they are sharing the visual experience of this wonderful story and forest world together.
One of the loveliest books you'll ever hold in your hands!
