This is a truly beautiful little book for reading to small children by Maria Luisa Arenzana and Antonella Canavese.
It is full of surreal rhymes and stunning illustrations which convey a peaceful, loving message of compassion and empathy for animals, hens in particular.
I love the verse on the above page which reads
which is nothing
in our hands
and it’s everything
in the world.
I took this to mean that it’s no good just to say we love animals and feel we love animals unless we put that love into practice in the world by living a compassionate life.
A truly beautiful, dreamy book which I’m sure would delight small children. It’s available on Amazon and, if you want one, could be with you in a few short days 🙂
