Our Gift-Filled World - a bookwrap

When we look around our beautiful earth we discover so many things to be thankful for.  It is continually giving us food, shelter and beauty every single day.  Kudos to an extraordinary terrestrial  planet that is a gift to us that keeps on giving......


Authored by Eun Hee Na
Illustrated by Ha Jin Jung

Unwrapping some great illustrations for you

About the book

The Earth quietly and unassumingly bestows gifts to its residents each and every day.  This book is a reminder to us all to be very appreciative of those gifts which are given to us freely.

The story touches on how our salt is gathered (from our ocean), how glass is made (from earthy sand), how cotton grows (to provide us with material for clothing) and the importance of our grass (for cows and other animals to indulge so we can have food),  just to name a few.

The illustrations visually enhance the narrative making this book by Korean author Enn Hee Na educational as well.  They will spark conversations about the bountiful contributions that we are receiving from "Our Gift-Filled Earth". The foldout pages are perfect to extend and get lost in.  They are a lovely addition that adds a deeper quality to the book's presentation and I'm sure that kids will find delightful.  

I love the last page the best as it will spark conversations between those who share the book together ...

"All these are gifts that Nature has given.
What gifts should we give to Nature?"
