“What a beautiful story!!!. It makes us realize that sometimes we don’t see the forest because of the trees. It tells the reader to see the tiniest details and appreciate all that we have every day.”
“ This lovely little story educates and teaches children of the world how very important it is to take care of trees that provide for our environment and our well-being.”
“A lovely and wise story about the earth’s resources all around us, which give life to ALL the living. A tree is life-giving, and this beautiful story shows us that our ecosystem is vital and sustains us. A thoughtful book to be read to children by their parents, and then discussed so that children will begin to see the beauty and life that surrounds them.”
“What a beautiful story!!!. It makes us realize that sometimes we don’t see the forest because of the trees. It tells the reader to see the tiniest details and appreciate all that we have every day.
To breathe and just be. It empowers all of us to stop and see what is around in the world, including knowing we can all make a difference. Loved the illustrations too.”
“This is a beautifully written book with accompanying illustrations that portray the interdependence of man and nature. Both benefit by a mutual respect and balance of interests. I also think it important that the girl is a good role model for developing female interest in the sciences and higher education. Young children will enjoy the story at face value, while older children can ponder the many layers of meaning contained within the text.”
“This is a wonderful book with a great message. I love it and am enjoying sharing it with my daughter.”
