Old Turtle by Douglas Wood. il Cheng-Khee Chee.
Scholastic Press: NY, 1992.

Simple enough for a child to read, but deep enough to teach and inspire adults. The world argues about God. First, the animals, and then, mankind. Old Turtle speaks both times to restore unity. The story is a reminder of what our purpose on Earth is and a message of hope that people are remembering and trying to heal damage that has been done.

The illustrations are stand alone art and add to an already powerful tale.
