Only a Tree Knows How to Be a Tree

Out of stock for now, sorry!

Written and Illustrated by Mary Murphy

With a sure touch, this beautiful book shows every young child its special place in the world, and how everyone and everything is both itself and part of the whole.

"Every person has their own thoughts in their head, and their own feelings in their heart. Every single person is different. And only they know how to be them."

Only a Tree knows how to be a tree! But trees are just the start – everything and everyone is different and special. Birds, dogs, fishes, people – and our Earth itself – all have their own unique place in our world. And only you know how to be you.
