The Red Tree

Review

Sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to...

We follow a young person as they go through their day, feeling depressed and uncertain, but in the end they see the seed of hope in a red tree.

The perfect blend of words and pictures, this is a wonderful book to share with anyone suffering from depression or uncertainty to help them explore their feelings. The poignant, expressive paintings perfectly illustrate the book and the text is beautifully designed on the page.
