Why the Sky Is Far Away: A Nigerian Folktale
BY MARY-JOAN GERSON (author) and CARLA GOLEMBE (illustrator)
Long ago, anyone who was hungry could pluck what they needed from the sky, but the sky gets tired and angry at the people who are wasting his bounty. The story has a positive message about the importance of not taking things for granted and good stewardship of the planet. This gorgeous book was also a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
