Editorial Reviews


"Realistically rendered animals are foregrounded, as on a stage, while Rothko-like backgrounds provide an aura of fantasy. The vibrant palette, strong contrast between warm and cool tones and sophisticated layering of colors effectively convey the splendor of nature." —

"Tiitinen creates a hopeful atmosphere with soulful animals set against compositions of blazing fire and cool earth tones." —Publishers Weekly (March 19, 2012)

"subtle and soothing"—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A great introduction to the care of the Earth."  —The Daytona Beach News-Journal

"A gentle, thoughtful tale of working together and of the miracles of nature, Drops of Life is also gorgeously decorated with sweeping, dramatic water-colored pages."  —Lee Littlewood with Creators Syndicate 

"This book teaches children not only an appreciation for nature, but that when we work together we can accomplish much more"—"One Mama's Daily Drama" blog

"[illustrator] Nikolai Tiitinen combines bright and vibrant colors with rich, earthy tones. The blended backgrounds emphasize the fantastic nature of the characters and plot."  —Once Upon a Book blog

Format: Hardcover
This storybook is the author's adaptation of her internationally known children's play. It's a story of animals helping one another to restore the world's beauty. When three animals journey to Africa, they discover that a desert has overtake the once lush forest, and they work together to start making changes around the world.

The book's resounding themes include compassion, responsibility, personal power and teamwork. It opens the door for many conversations about character and values and even personal mission statements.

Each page has a good bit of text, so I would recommend this to older readers. It would be a good read-aloud tale to inspire environmental studies or service projects around environmental issues.

It has been released just in time for Earth Day, so you might consider reading this book in conjunction with your Earth Day festivities.
