In this beautiful anthology of folktales, young readers will learn about the way different cultures around the world live in harmony with the rhythms and patterns of nature. They will discover how to tread lightly on our precious Earth by following the easy eco-tips and by trying out some of the fun and creative activities that accompany each story. Children will discover how the residents of the Kingdom of Benin deep within the Nigerian rainforest consume less and conserve more; how the Comanche Indians respect Mother Earth by giving more than they receive; among Bali s coral reefs and volcanic mountain peaks is the lesson that everything in nature is connected.
