Publisher Comments:

An adaptation of Esko-Pekka Tiitinens internationally known childrens play, the story of endangered species from all over the world coming together to save the planet instills in children the importance of being environmentally conscious. An elderly owl and a whale help a dove make the long journey home to Africa, but once they arrive, they find that a desert has taken over the once-lush forest. With the cooperation of other animals, a human, the sun, the water, and a favorable wind, they can sow the seeds of life again. This beautifully illustrated fable deals with many themes, including solidarity, respect for nature, overcoming obstacles by helping one another, and the benefits of teamwork.

Una adaptación de la obra de teatro para niños internacionalmente conocida de Esko-Pekka Tiitinen, el cuento sobre animales en peligro de extinción de todas partes del mundo que se unen para salvar el planeta les inculca a los niños la importancia de ser respetuosos hacia el medio ambiente. Un búho anciano y una ballena acompañan a una paloma en el largo viaje hasta su hogar en África, pero cuando llegan descubren que un desierto ha invadido lo que antes era un frondoso bosque. Con la cooperación de otros animales, de un ser humano, del sol, del agua y de un viento favorable, pueden sembrar las semillas de la vida nuevamente. Esta fábula bellamente ilustrada trata sobre varios temas, incluyendo la solidaridad, el respeto hacia la naturaleza, el enfrentar los obstáculos ayudándose los unos a los otros y los beneficios del trabajo en equipo.
