About the Book

BOOK SUMMARY THE WOODCARVER’S CLOCK One day a woodcarver, searching for wood to carve, comes upon a splendid forest few had ever seen. He revels in the beautiful scene of colorful flowers and their sweet scent, but is dismayed by the ear-splitting noise made by the birds. To end their terrible racket, he offers them a plan that would recognize and satisfy each of them. The birds accept the plan, the noise ends and the forest becomes a truly lovely place. The woodcarver goes home happily, and inspired by the birds, builds a clock featuring them. Enchanting illustrations, meticulously articulated in vibrant colors, accompany this delightful story. Children will surely love this book. Reading level: 2nd grade +

AUTHOR’S BIOGRAPHY Marie Yamashita is a 91 year old great grandmother and widow who lives in Molokai, Hawaii. Before retirement, she was a classroom teacher and a high school librarian, who served in the schools of Molokai for 32 years. She has written two children’s stories as legacies for her four great grandchildren---the oldest is seven---with the hope that in reading them in later years, they will have something tangible to connect them to the little old lady they used to call G.
