The Acorn Bowl is a story of butterflies and dragonflies, fairies and fantasy. The message is clear, that we should all love one another. But there's a deeper lesson of understanding and tolerance that is particularly relevant in today's complex world.Each Bug in the forest represents one of the world's major religions, and they must work together to avoid the fire-breathing Dragonfly, while searching for the Acorn Bowl. The supporting web site, www.TheAcornBowl.com, has teaching points for Toddlers with the simple message that we should celebrate our differences, and love our friends and family. A link to the Children's page introduces the reader to different world religions and the rich symbolism in the story. The Adult link explores the comparative theological philosophies in an attempt to find common ground... ecumenicalism. Please visit our web site for a full appreciation of this apparently simple story... read, explore, and participate.
