The Ship and the Island

Alona Frankel
AGE: 3-5

A ship and an island fall in love. Love makes the island blossom, full of butterflies and sweet fragrances, and the lovers are blissfully happy. But eventually the ship must sail on his way. The island misses him terribly and the ship, too, is so upset that he loses his way. But eventually, kind winds help him to return to his island, and the two decide never to part again. So the island cuts herself lose from the seabed and floats next to her ship, up and down the ocean. The winds scatter the island`s seeds; fruits and flowers grow, and the ship carries them all over the world.
