An inspirational rhyming tale about the importance of sharing, solving conflict and caring for our world.

The land is mine …
From the daisy to the tree …
Each and every flower …
Every twig belongs to me!

From the beetle to the general and the animals and people in between, every creature stakes a claim on the land … from the cities to the islands, to every rock, nook and cranny … But where can this lead? What will be left? Perhaps the wise worm has the answer.

A delight to read aloud!

  2. The illustrations engender a feeling of comedy behind the story, diffusing the reality somewhat, making it more palatable to younger readers. This will readily encourage students to talk about their environment, who owns it and just who is responsible. ReadPlus
