David Rice


"No Matter how short,
no matter how long,
No matter how big,
how smart or how strong,
All Life has a place,
a purpose and worth,
All life is important
on our planet earth."


The plants and animals of Lifetimes

The foreword:

Dear fellow Earth Residents,

"Our dear home, planet Earth, is having terrible problems! It's not too late to solve them, but to do so we need to work together and respect each species' role in Mother Nature's grand plan"

"Most of us plants and animals have lived on Earth for millions of years -far longer than humans have been around. We've learned many things through the ages that we would like to share with your species. We hope that after reading about our lifetimes, you will agree that:"
