Hugging Tree: A Story about Resilience


Product Description

Published USA, 2016
On a bleak and lonely rock
By a vast and mighty sea
Grew a lonely little tree
Where no tree should ever be

A little tree grows all alone on a cliff by a vast sea. She clings to this cliff through storms and the cold of winter. The sun warms her and the birds use her as their home. One day a storm tears the tree's roots from under her but she is sustained by the natural world and the kindness and compassion of a little boy. Eventually the tree grows to be healthy and can hold and shelter others. This story is a metaphor for resilience. It calls to mind the potential in all of us: to thrive despite times of struggle and difficulty. Told in rhyming text, this book is a peaceful story of caring and compassion.
