If there_s room in the world for all the birds in the sky and whales in the ocean, why do humans always fight for space? This young child_s reflections carry a profound message of peace and tolerance.
A child grows and discovers the world. As he lies awake at night, he sees there_s enough room in the sky for all the stars and the moon. When he visits the ocean, he sees there is enough room for all the fish, even for the whales. As he grows up, he doesn_t understand why people fight for space. Surely, if we are kinder to one another, there will always be room for everyone?
This is a beautiful and profound picture book _ a testament of our time and a touching allegory for war and the refugee crisis.
