Earth Fables is a collection of fables, encompassing a combination of poetry and prose, aimed at introducing new perspectives into the relationship between humans and other living creatures and inanimate objects in nature. The fables vary in their specific intended audiences, with some geared more toward children and others more conducive to adult readers; however, the subject matter in each lends itself to dialogue among families, friends, and communities of all ages. The goal in reading and discussing all the fables is a more complex and comprehensive understanding of how we view life around us and how we can live more sustainably.
