Book and Activities: The Promise

The Promise Image

On a mean street in a mean city, a thief tries to snatch an old woman’s bag. But she finds she can’t have it without promising something in return – to ‘plant them all’. When it turns out the bag is full of acorns, the young thief embarks on a journey that changes her own life and the lives of others for generations to come.

This is a picture book of great beauty and hope about the power we have to transform our world.
