Review:

'A perfect book for the thoughtful child about the trees that grace our world and the many things they can be to the creatures that live in them, admire and enjoy them. This must be a unique idea, to collect folktales of dancing palms, healing fig trees and magical cherry blossoms in appreciation of the importance of trees. If anything will plant the seeds of a yearning to protect our endangered forests, this book will.' --Wave
