CHILDREN'S STORY

The Gift of Arbol Ceiba

‚Äč

In the deepest jungle of the ancient land of the Maya, Arbol Ceiba is the oldest and grandest tree in the forest. She holds in her loving, maternal branches all the creatures she cares for as her children.

 

But of all her loved and loving charges, Quetzal, the bird, who was orphaned when poachers took away his parents, is her favorite. And that devotion has blinded her to his faults: his growing vanity and disdain for his fellow tree-mates.

 

With the help of Buho, the owl, Quetzal learns humility and to treasure his place among his fellow creatures.
