Why the Oyster has the Pearl by Johnette Downing

Why the Oyster has the Pearl by Johnette Downing

Award-winning Louisiana children’s musician and author Johnette Downing shares with Confetti Park this marvelous trickster tale about generosity.

A long time ago, the Oyster was not only generous and kind; he was also the keeper of all the gems in the world. Whenever any type of creature would come to him in need, the Oyster would share his jewels without hesitation. One day, a very greedy snake hatches a plan to shift the balance of wealth in the sea. But he’s in for a surprise when he tests the limits of the Oyster’s generosity.

This narration is available on her Reading Rocks CD, and in book form by Pelican Publishing.
