Review: Trees

'Trees are marvellous beings.'

Come and discover the life of trees and their role in nature.

Appreciate their beauty in all the seasons. See deciduous trees bare of foliage in winter and their fruit bearing branches in summer.

Discover how trees communicate with one another.

Reflect on where trees grow.

Contemplate a tree's function in the environment, 'Trees clean the air we breathe.'

Trees by Lemniscates pairs mixed media illustrations with words that create a gentle and eye-opening story. It takes readers on a conscious journey showing that trees are a constant in our lives.

Lemniscates' illustrations cleverly show a bird's life intertwined with trees. It depicts a bird feeding on fruit, raising a family amongst the branches and sheltering from tree to tree as it travels across the landscape.

Trees, prompts me to be mindful about trees in my environment. Just like the child in the illustrations, I need to stop and give a humongous hug to the next tree I see and to say, thank you.
