“Five virtues of a happier life are introduced to young readers through stories told by trees. The power of gratitude, humility, selflessness, kindness and forgiveness are shared by such memorable Tree ‘friends’ as Shady Maple, Slope-Oak, Blue Spruce, and others. The author brings trees to life in these stories, mirroring what some people often feel or believe. Blue Spruce feels she is not big enough, that she is missing something and needs to become better in some way. This book is a group of stories where children from 4-8 years of age will learn some great lessons. Questions at the end of each chapter invite children to consider their reactions to the story…and to themselves. The illustrations are amazing and complete the story. They are whimsical and creative. Children as well as parents will love this delightfully told book.”
