    1. Taken individually, I thought only a very few of the stories were truly excellent, but as a package, this is a wonderful book. The stories, activities that follow each story, and the illustrations work together to form a lovely book with some heft, a book that’s lovely and thought provoking. I enjoyed the theme of the earth and its inhabitants (usually people) taking care of all living things on the planet and protecting them and living with them.Amrita’s Tree from India, She Who is Alone fr [...]

    2. This collection of folktales from around the world focuses on the environment and our relationship with it. Each story is preceded by an introduction, and followed by an activity that relates to the tale.

Some of the stories were familiar: "Why the Sky is Far Away" I first heard as a Caldecott honor book by Elphinstone Dayrell; "She Who is Alone" is a version of Tomie [...]

    4. A selection of stories from around the world, this is a charming collection of tales that describe humans' relationship with Earth. Some are creation myths, some stories about ecosystems or pollution, but they all describe the way our actions affect the world around us. I found it interesting to read about each country or culture's common stories, and then to see what crafts were associated with each story. This isn't a book I would seek out for myself, but I enjoyed it nonetheless, and the pict [...]

    5. I will take a while to finish this with my daughter as it is jam packed with stories from around the world. Each of them give a view point from a different country about the relationships between man and nature or how nature interacts with each other part.Each story is followed by an activity to do. Some of these are arty such as Australian painting. Or maybe creating a bird feeder or building a willow wigwam. I will have fun trying some of these out over the school holidays.A good book to share [...]
