Summary "Mother Nature is a very busy woman. Her job is to tend to the Earth and all the creatures that dwell thereshe must wake up the bulbs and warm the land in spring, then rush off to freeze the ponds and create snow in winter. But more than anything, Mother Nature wants children of her own. So with twigs and things she made five: Fear, Envy, Hate, Greed, and Fickle. She asks the most helpless of creaturesthe poor, wingless humansto watch over them as she works. But then her childrens wild personalities begin to seep into human nature in a way that Mother Nature never intended. A lilting, lyrical ode to all of our human shortcomings and the one traitlovethat can overcome them all, this book beautifully captures the complexity of us all."--Amazon website.
