#26: The Wise Old Gnome
The Wise Old Gnome cares for Mother Earth. He lives deep in the Limindoor woods under the roots of a great oak tree. Every autumn, he gathers acorns from the squirrels so he can plant them to keep the forest growing with lots of trees. This simple and delightful autumn tale invites us, child and adult alike, to connect with nature and inspires us to care for Mother Earth.
Adapted from the story “Brother Acorn” by Sieglinde De Francesca, author of ‘a donsy of gnomes’ which you can find at: teachwonderment.com
