A lyrical, gorgeously illustrated look at the majesty of trees—and what humans can learn from them.
Stretch your branches to the sun and be a tree! We are all like trees, fueled by air and sun, sharing food and shelter; trees teach and inspire us to be better people. Together, we can be forests, caring for each other.
In this gorgeous and poetic celebration of one of nature’s greatest creations, acclaimed author Maria Gianferrari and illustrator Felicita Sala both compare us to the beauty and majesty of trees—and gently share the ways in which trees can inspire us to be better people.

Maria Gianferrari has climbed fig trees in Italy, stood under stately coastal redwoods and twisted Torrey pines, marveled at mitten-shaped sassafras leaves, colorful coral trees and sawtooth oak acorn nests. She lives with her family, including dog, Maple, in a house encircled by trees.
