This is a well-written, educational,greatly illustrated story book which values the Earth through tales from different countries and related activities. As you read the tales you get immersed in the stories and are reminded of the importance of taking care of our planet. It's great to see how other parts of the world view the gift of nature.
It has the added bonus of related activities. This would be a wonderful book for a classroom or for keeping away summer boredom for a family.
