Wisdom Tales, The Otter, the Spotted Frog and the Great Flood, listen to the voice, review

When it comes to children's books, many stories are simplistic, un-inspiring or without a moral. The Wisdom Tales books offer stories from the Native American culture that inspires readers to gain understanding of the world and our relationship to it.

The newest book in the Wisdom Tale line,The Otter, the Spotted Frog, and the Great Flood is an origin tale of the Georgia Creek Indians. These people are the ancestors of the Florida Seminole and Miccosukee tribes. While my smaller children may not understand the nuances of the entire story, the simple moral of listening is clear.

While reading this story together, we took two aspects to heart from this book. First, the Otter was willing to listen to Spotted Frog. He was open, honest and willing to stand alone. Even when everyone else thought he was silly for making a raft, he understood that there was a reason and purpose for his action. He stood tall in his beliefs and convictions.

The second aspect that is that we should listen and respect the planet. Our existence on this planet is dependent on how well we protect it and treat it. All beings must co-exist, respect and listen to each other. In time, the Earth will change, adapt and grow. As these changes occur, everyone must accept the changes.

Wisdom Tales offers carefully woven tales with beautifully illustrations. Readers of all ages will be engaged with the characters and their drawings. These are books that will have a long life on your home book shelves.
