SAIL AWAY: In search of the Golden Pearl
We meet the crew of the ship. They are searching for the golden pearl. Why is
the pearl so special? Because it is one of a kind!
Their journey takes them over the ocean where the sea creatures live.
They arrive at the island – perhaps the birds will help them find the golden
pearl. The birds are not too helpful at first. The crew promise to leave the
island as they found it. Now the birds will help them – follow the clues!
What is the secret of the golden pearl? Listen to your heart.
