About the Book Full Circle

A child holds one end of a string.
The other end is tied to a pull-toy.
The pull-toy´s wheels rest on the grass.
The grass is rooted to the earth.
The earth touches the waters of the sea.
The sunlight strikes the waters and draws them up.
The waters vaporized become a cloud.
The cloud bursts and spills its rain.
The rain falls on the child holding a string.
