What does it mean to be like a tree?

For one young child, it all begins as a tiny seed that is free to grow and reach out to others while standing strong and tall— just like a tree in the natural world.

With this gentle and imaginative story about becoming your fullest self, Maya Christina Gonzalez empowers young readers to dream and reach . . . and to be as free and unique as trees.


Art Director observations: Working with Maya Gonzalez is fascinating because her approach, though organic and intuitive, has very specific intentions behind the balance of her images and words that relate to her educational curriculum.
