Wood's celebrated, bestselling fable of ecology and spirituality, reissued in March 2007 with a beautiful new jacket design.
Long ago, the animals, rocks, waters, and trees of the earth began an argument about God. Is He a wind who is never still? Is He a rock that never moves? Is He high above or here among us?
Venerable Old Turtle quitely answered: God is all of these things.
In 1992, Old Turtle burst upon the publishing world as a uniquely satisfying fable about ecology, peace, and the interconnectedness of all beigns. Few books can match the understated, universal power of its hopeful message. The beautiful repackaging Scholastic is releasing in March 2007 makes it the perfect gift book.

This is one of my favorite all time stories. I absolutely love the symbolism. I cry every time I read it to my children, and now my 7 year old cries too. THEY GET IT.
We are all connected and God is in all of us! And when we realize that our loving hearts and compassion can save the world, we have learned the lesson.
