The Leaf & The Tree is a Children's book that is 24 pages. I read this with my 8 and 10 year old sons. It is beautifully illustrated. We love the lesson that it represented. All of the forest animals respected the tree. The tree had been there for a long time. The leaves grow on the tree, and grow and are watered. Then the seasons change. The leaves know that their time to fall is coming.
One leaf falls to the ground and is so sad. The leaf was so dependent on the tree to keep him safe he is scared and unsure what happens next. The roots at the bottom of the tree shows how important the leaf was to the tree and how they all work together to stay together. The root tells the leaf that the tree needs all the roots, the water, the sun, the leaves all together to thrive. The boys really liked this story.
