A breathtakingly beautiful story that needs no words to understand what's happening. And to understand what we need to do better as conservators of this planet.

Visually gorgeous, this is a powerful testament to the connection between humans and animals. We all survive by honoring one another. I hope this book inspires kids to see how their own stewardship of our environment can change the world.
