This stunning collection of stories from around the world, which celebrate the importance of the world we live in, is supported by inspiring hands-on activities to encourage all to protect and preserve our world as much as we are able. From Australia there is The Sun Mother, the story of the cycles of light and dark that the sun and the moon and the stars make; from Bali there’s Grumpy Gecko which shows how important connections between living things are but how fragile those connections may be. Looking after our world is important to everyone; this collection shows why.
