Join the Shepherdess and her young friend for a walk through the countryside in search of three special sheep. At the end of the day, the true significance of their quest is revealed.
“I would like there to be a shift in our culture towards more gentleness, compassion, and beauty in the lives of children. A sense of wonder at the miracles of nature, an understanding of subtlety and beauty, and a true appreciation of quiet pleasures and kind gestures. The literature and entertainment provided for children are so often loud and violent. Heroes must be ‘super’ heroes. Illustrations in children’s books are usually hard-edged and dominated by primary colors. Even the word used for them, ‘kids,’ is short and slangy. Yet children are infinitely sensitive and exquisitely responsive. They have vivid imaginations which, it seems to me, can be overwhelmed by all the noise, brightness, and speed which assail them.
With my book, Walk Shepherdess, Walk, I have tried to bring back the enchantment with nature and music which I was fortunate enough to have experienced as a child.”
