“Just the thought alone made their wish come true …”
In this rich, modern-day fable, Black Bear, Loon and Walleye take a wild adventure that teaches them lessons that are as universal as they are timeless. Their desire to switch their coats is granted, and the three friends learn to appreciate each other’s gifts, but most of all to value their own. This is a story for all generations and a reminder of the importance of trying new things, understanding our own true nature, and having faith that we are all perfectly designed to fulfill our own unique purposes in life.
“Know yourself well … value your gifts”
In the tradition of oral storytelling, the accompanying CD brings the book to life with a dramatic reading and an enchanting song. Children can read and sing along, whether at home or sitting around a crackling fire beneath a starlit sky.
