Stories for A Fragile PlanetBook - 2010
Ten sumptuously illustrated stories from different cultures highlight the importance of taking care of the world Sourced from around the world and through the ages, this is a collection of world stories that each reflect humanity's need to take care of the world that sustains them. Tales from ancient Greece, the Far East, the Celts, Africa, Greenland, Russia, China, Japan, South America, and ancient Israel afford wonderful opportunities for Jane Ray's paradisiacal paintings of trees and flowers, animals and birds--in short, all creation. With a theme combining tradition with contemporary urgency, children will gain knowledge of other cultures that share their planet, while enjoying the evocative words and astonishing pictures.
