This deceptively simple tale will resonate with young children and their parents/caregivers. Beautifully illustrated with soft colors, this lovely picture book is for pre-readers and early readers. Its environmental message is a welcome addition to a small but growing cadre of books aimed at teaching children important lessons about becoming stewards of the world which they will inherit. The message comes through a story that is developmentally appropriate and engaging.
