Why The Sky Is Far Away

by Mary-Joan Gerson | 01 February 2005
Hardback
Category: Early Learning
Synopsis
Once the sky was so close that people could reach up and break off pieces of it to eat, but they wasted so much that the sky grew angry. Finally, after a woman broke off a big piece despite the sky's warnings and then tried to hide what she couldn't finish, the sky floated upwards, forcing us to work for our food ever since. First printed as a picture book in 1974, this delightful Nigerian tale is presented here with revisions and colourful new illustrations, giving a modern feel to this classic story. For ages 4 to 8.
