Nature's Apprentice : The Magic of the PEATLANDS by Elizabeth Bekolay (Your Nickel's Worth Publishing)

$19.95 CAD


There’s a melody, if you pay heed, calling you to follow Nature’s lead— a familiar tune, a chorused creed, a song of both grown plant and seed. As the fluted magic on the wind floats by, you might find yourself only insect-high— or even too small to be seen by the eye! (But how else could you ride a dragonfly?) The Council of Beings has asked me to greet young readers who would like to meet nature’s apprentices. Their challenging feat is to strive to save the moss and peat.
