The Lovereading4Kids comment
Ten stories from different times and different places demonstrate the importance of looking after the earth and the creatures that live on it. Each story tells how mutual respect will lead us to have the planet we want and guide us in how to take care of it. Rich in detail, Jane Ray’s stunning illustrations capture the magic of our world and enormous importance of nurturing it.
Stories for a Fragile Planet by Kenneth Steven
An author and poet, welcomed for his reflective and thought-provoking style, retells 10 stories from different cultures - from around the world and through the ages - which each highlight the importance of taking care of the world. These stories - from ancient Greece, the Far East, the Celts, Africa, Greenland, Russia, China, Japan, South America and ancient Israel - afford wonderful opportunities for Jane Ray's paradisiacal paintings of trees and flowers, animals and birds...in short, all creation.
"This beautifully illustrated book brings together stories from around the world and across the centuries. The common theme is caring for our beautiful planet. The inclusion of stories from countries such as Greenland and South America make this book stand out from other collections. Many of the stories show how much we can learn from the animals. Jane Ray's wonderful illustrations really capture the essence of each story and make this a book to treasure." A Parentsintouch.co.uk
