A Little Book of Tree Wisdom, or What My Tree Told Me
is a sweet collection of messages from a tree delivered to Fiona Budd during lockdown, beautifully illustrated by Jay-Lee Shih.
“When the eyes and ears are open,
even the leaves on the trees teach
like pages from the scriptures.”
Good morning I said to my tree
What news do you have for me?
