"In this charming original fairy tale, children learn that the road to greatness lies in selflessness and that the loving kindness of a pure heart can awaken great love and power in another. Maya's mother is a gentle soul. When she dies she bequeaths her daughter the task of caring for her father--and for herself. For her mother once had a dream that Maya was meant for great things, and it was the kind of dream that always comes true. Although she is poor, Maya grows kinder and more beautiful with each passing year. One day, she finds a little turtle and takes him home, raising and caring for him, never knowing that he will play a part in her destiny. Beautifully illustrated and filled with fascinating nuggets of information about Korean culture, this book offers a poignant tale of the rewards of kindness, patience, courage, and a loving heart, and a lesson in how true glory--even if foretold--must be earned"-- provided by publisher.
