First Light, First Life : A Worldwide Creation Story (School And Library) (Paul Fleischman)
About this item
In this companion to Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal, Newbery Medal winner Paul Fleischman and Julie Paschkis turn to the universal story of creation.
In the beginning there was only darkness. . . . There was fire and ice. . . . There was a single drop of milk.
Combining elements of the creation story from different traditions, this narrative weaves together one complete picture of how the world began. It is a celebration of the many and varied peoples of the earth, of their commonalities and their differences. It is a celebration of life.
