Resource Description

This simple picture book takes readers on a journey of self-discovery with its colourful, thought-provoking imagery and lyrically-written story, depicting children growing like trees, connecting with nature, and with each other. Told in both English and Spanish, this book offers vibrant illustrations and its content will prompt readers to reflect on their own uniqueness and individuality—free to be like a tree in nature. Suitable for all elementary-level students, this engaging storybook is appropriate as a read-aloud and may inspire classroom discussions about diversity, self-acceptance, and personal growth. The story’s omission of gender pronouns lends itself to discussions on pronoun use, allowing the resource to be used as an introduction to lessons about gender identity and individuality.
