Description

The Maker's good and beautiful wolrd has been spoiled by people's selfishness. A child's caring act provides the solution that overcomes the destructive power of greed and provides a way back to paradise. 'Paradise is turned into scenes of devastation by man. A child plants a seed, which grows into a tree, and under it appears a new earthly paradise. Depicted in decorative, oriental watercolours...the story's punchline points heavenward.' Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Fine detailed brushwork and a creative use of language which is printed so that it blends beautifully with the illustrations make this picture story book a very good resource to use with primary pupils...Illustrated beautifully on every page, this magical story adds a spiritual dimension to the story of creation...Highly recommended" RE Today, Spring 2000 Issueshow more
