Synopsis: Illustrated throughout, this tale explains why people today must grow and harvest their own food. In the beginning eating was simple - everyone reached up and ate a piece of the sky. Through carelessness and waste the people eventually angered the sky and it sailed upwards - out of reach.

About the Author: Mary-Joan Gerson has written five books for children. She was inspired to write this story after spending time in Nigeria with the Peace Corps. Mary travels extensively to explore different cultures and discover new ways to see the world, and enjoys sharing that experience with children and adults through her books.

Carla Golembe is an award-winning illustrator, artist, author, and teacher. Her artwork, in a wide range of mediums including acrylic on paper and canvas, gouache, and monotype, has been featured at galleries across the country.
