Winner at the 2012 Living Now Book AwardsAn owl accompanies a dove on a long journey to her birthplace in Africa. They undertake part of the voyage on the back of a whale, who helps them when he sees that flying makes the old owl tired. Once they arrive at their destination, they find that sand has taken over the area-where a lush forest once stood, there's now nothing but desert! They will need the cooperation of other animals, a human, the sun, the water and a favorable wind in order to sow the seeds of life once more. This beautiful story talks about solidarity, respect for nature, overcoming obstacles by helping one another, and the benefits of teamwork.
