The Sparrow and the Tortoise

The Sparrow and the Tortoise

A thirsty sparrow searching for water to drink discovers the Mirror Pond at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. Will the pond's crystal clear water satisfy the sparrow's thirst? Or will something else become an even greater concern? 

The Sparrow and the Tortoise is a thoughtful tale of a sparrow's journey to discover what is real and what is only a reflection. The sparrow finds answers to its questions when it flies to the Giant Buddha and then to Mt. Fuji, following the advice of a wise tortoise. What the sparrow learns at first only adds to its burden. But then, the sparrow's life is changed forever. 

A conversation starter for all ages.
