Origin

A book about the balance between resources and responsibility.

Jack is hungry and wants a big pancake for breakfast. But first, his mother needs some help gathering the ingredients. Jack harvests the wheat to mill the flour, gathers the eggs, milks the cow, and churns the butter for his pancake! This lively and vibrant story helps children gain an understanding of everything that goes into the food that they eat.

This beautifully illustrated story tells the Cherokee origin legend of strawberries. Page by page, the fable unfolds with a easy to follow storyline and important accompanying moral- that friendship and respect are as sweet as the taste of ripe, red berries.
