"Walk across the land and gather the seeds of all the flowers and all the trees. Take two of every kind of living plant....Work quickly. The rains begin tomorrow."
From award-winning author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, a new story which lights our spiritual imaginations.
When God tells Noah to bring the animals of the world onto the ark, God also calls on Naamah, Noah's wife, to save each plant on Earth.
Entrusted with this task, Naamah sets off to every corner of the world, discovering a fabulous array of growing things, and gathering seeds, bulbs, cuttings, spores, and roots. She fills a room on the ark with every type of plant--from amaryllis, soybeans, and wheat to lilies, moss, and even dandelions. Then, after 40 long days and nights on the ark, the most important part of Naamah's work begins.
In this new story, based on an ancient text, Naamah's wisdom and love for the natural harmony of the earth inspires us to use our own courage, creativity, and faith to carry out Naamah's work today.
Praise for Sandy Eisenberg Sasso’s Work
"At last, we learn the secret of how plants recovered from the Great Flood. In this nurturing story, Naamah....inspires us all to carry on her tradition as stewards of Earth's garden."
Michael J. Caduto, co-author, The Keepers of the Earth® books; founder, P.E.A.C.E.® (Programs for Environmental Awareness and Cultural Exchange)
"A story for people of all faith traditions. With humor, tenderness, and wisdom, it speaks nevertheless with urgency: Care for creation--it is God's gift to us."
Rev. Carla V. Berkedal, Founding Director, Earth Ministry, Seattle, WA
"A lovely tale....Children of all ages should be drawn to this parable for our times."
