On My Mountain
On My Mountain Written by Francois Aubineau Illustrated by Jerome Peyrat Originally published in French in 2017 First Published in English in 2020 Age range: preschool
A shepherd and a wolf have made their home on the mountain, yet they both fear the other. Both sides tell their story-the same story in fact and they make their case for why they love their home, yet they appear to see it from their own point of view, and not the other side. There is a great message about sharing the environment and with sharing comes understanding and acceptance.
A Bookish Decree:
A story with great significance yet the narrative is unassumingly stated
