This ‘little story about big things’ explores the cycle of life, the turn of seasons, survival of the fittest and
the delicacy of the natural world. The combination of the dramatic illustrations, the minimalist text and the DVD of the breathtaking original music will provide a wonderfully rich tapestry for students to explore. Tree is a poignant story that will provide a launching pad for discussion of the ‘big things’ in life.
