Old Rock (is not boring)
A lovely book all about perspective, something many of use could use right about now. Old Rock has been sitting in the same spot in the forest for as long as anyone can remember. Those that also frequent the area around Old Rock—including Spotted Beetle, Tall Pine, and Hummingbird assume Old Rock must be soooo bored, because as far as they can recall, he hasn’t ever moved.
Turns out, their assumptions are way off, as Old Rock casually begins to tell them tales of his past adventures; hearkening back to when he was erupted from an exploding volcano! That’s not boring at all! After that, he had many amazing adventures, including surviving through the time of the dinosaurs, riding a glacier through the Ice Age, and beyond. A great story about the natural world, the passage of time, and seeing others perspectives and understanding that what we think and see may not always as it seems.
