Princess Who Danced with Cranes by Annette LeBox
Book DescriptionAges 6 to 9 years. A beautiful illustrated fable about a land that is almost destroyed until a princess takes action to save her environment. Long ago, Princess Vivian lived in a castle surrounded by a beautiful marsh. She loved to play in the rich greenery and eat the wild berries she found. Most of all she loved to dance with the cranes who lived by the river. But one day a stranger came and beguiled the villagers with a wonderful new game called Gulleywhupper. Everyone loved it, including the King and Queen. In fact, the game was so popular they had to dam up the river to make more room to play. Before anyone really noticed, the marsh had dried up, no more berries could be found, and the music of the cranes no longer rang through the morning mist. A beautiful fable, "The Princess Who Danced with Cranes" reminds young people about the fragility of nature. It also shows how each of us has a role to play in protecting the environment.
