Review:
Earth Mother awakens and spends the day visiting her domain. As she crosses the landscape, apparently Africa, she stops to commune with different creatures, some who enjoy her visit, and some who do not. They complain. Subtle as the story is, young children will understand and enjoy it immensely.
