“ Why the Sea is Salt ”

“ Why the Sea is Salt ”


I selected the stories very carefully about "learning" in the old stories. Old folk tales usually have "learning" to the children. I was very amazed because I leant something from the stories as like the past children learnt. So I was thinking about this theme of how I can teach something with my style of illustration to the children now. That was the theme of this project "heritage". For "Why the Sea is Salt", that story tells us about the heart of helping each other and kindness. This is very warm kind story I believe. I hope it will tell something to the children now.
