The Sand Dollar, written by Michael Woodworth, about the importance of establishing balance with nature.

 

 

While walking on the shore of the Sea of Cortez a man has a remarkable dialog with the sea. Using the naturally occurring dove like structures found in sand dollars, the sea relates its past wars with the sun, the wind, the mountains, and the moon and addresses its ongoing war with man. The sea's explanation of the need for the fifth dove is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression with readers of all ages.

The Sea of Cortez is a vast body of water located between the Baja California peninsula and Mexico’s mainland. Having a surface area of 62,000 square miles it is thought to be one of the most diverse seas on the planet. So many species live in these waters that famous ocean researcher Jacques Cousteau referred to the Sea of Cortez as the world’s aquarium.

Now the Sea of Cortez plainly speaks through the words of author Michael Woodworth and the captivating illustrations of artist Craig Pennington. The Sea’s message is one for young and old alike and it is too important to be missed.
