Douglas Wood - Old Turtle

Old Turtle

Author: Douglas Wood; Illustrator: Cheng-Khee Chee

  • AGES 6 - 8 
  • Genre Fiction
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 quietly answered: God is all of these things. Then people arrived on the earth and, before long, began the same argument, hurting each other and the earth — until one day, they began to hear Old Turtle's message. And Old Turtle smiled. And so did God.
