What we can learn from trees
We are all like trees: to live we need air and sun – and each other. Trees, like people, live in communities. They share food and resources, offer each other protection and look after each other. Because together they are stronger. For us adults, the book is a gentle guide to walking mindfully through the world. For our children, there is plenty to discover in 40 enchanting watercolours – we love this book!
Be a Tree!
“Stand tall. Stretch your branches to the sun. Be a tree!”
To ground you.
“Let your roots curl, coil in the soil to ground you.”
We purify the air.
“We purify the air. We anchor the soil, preventing erosion. Our dome of joined crowns swings and straightens, slowing high winds.“
The Horn Book Magazine
„An encouraging nudge to look toward nature for guidance, and a valuable message that together, we are a forest.“
Heidrun Weber, Ostfriesische Nachrichten
“If you’ve read [Be Like a Tree!], you know why some great poets have said before that trees are our brothers.”
Alexandra Fichtler-Laube, kinderbuchcouch.de
“Be Like a Tree! is a unique combination of non-fiction and invitation to philosophise together with children.”
