Happy New Year!

Do your resolutions call for more art-making and daydreaming? This is the perfect book for you. It’s a look at the profound nature of trees—their strength, their gifts, and their incredible patience.

Some of you might be seeing winter trees right now (not here!), and some of you are patiently waiting for spring’s blooms. Let this book remind you that the seasons will change and bring beauty each time.

It makes me want to gather some materials: colored paper, leaves and sticks, scissors, paint, and glue.

Read it, dream it, make it.

There is also some great downloadable content at Lemniscates’s webpage here. Coloring pages, finger puppets, and puzzles galore! Take a peek and have even more fun!

    I love her work. Now, I’m inspired to do a little collaging.
