This collection of 77 poems addresses a variety of environmental issues for young readers. Each poem--with titles like "What is a Weed?", "Seal-Song," "The Dodo," "A River's Story"--gives a relevant issue, such as endangered species, meaning for children just discovering environmentalism. The poets--including Robert Louis Stevenson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, a Zuni Indian, and a group of school children--are from all over the world.

What is One?

One is the sun,
a rhino's horn;
a drop of dew,
a lizard's tongue.

One is the world,
a lonely whale;
an elephant's trunk,
a monkey's tail.

One is an acorn,
one is a moon;
one is a forest,
felled too soon.
