“In this cosmic fairytale, the extraordinary poet and storyteller Elizabeth Alberda, takes us on a mythic journey from a world at peace, where children are honored and loved, through a dark time of danger, into a shining future where all beings live in harmony. Evocative visual images complement the rich, subtle poetry to create a powerful message of hope for children and adults of all ages.

“The Little Wren is a magical tale about the innocence of a child’s heart, wicked forces and the power of nature to support and sustain humankind. The illustrations are beautiful and inspiring. Something to read with your children again and again.”
- Douglas Shapiro
“Adults who love the earth, peace and dreams, will cherish sharing this beautiful poem-story with children. Children, from the most verbally precocious to the pre-verbal, will be deeply touched by The Little Wren’s rich sounds, colors, and breath-taking illustrations, which somehow excite and soothe the senses at once.
