"Lyrically written, this unique fable, exquisitely illustrated, tells what happens when greed spoils the beauty and peace of the very first, perfect forest. This best selling resource encourages us all to share, to respect others, and much more." -Scholastic of Canada "If the litmus test for a piece of literature is whether it strikes the intended audience as the author hopes, then The First Forest is a stand-alone success." -D. Showers, Review --Scholastic of Canada/D. Showers Review
"The First Forest is a little allegorical tale with a message as big as the world. Dealing with the gigantic issues of greed and selfishness, it delivers a potent punch.

The tree makes creates his tree with love but one day they get into a fight and some get injured. The tree maker still loves his tress and is hurt to see what they have done to each other and must punish them by making their leaves fall off in the winter to remind them to always be kind to one another.
I shared it with my preschool class and we made an entire lesson out of it. My daughter and I just love it!
Finally I found it and I literally ordered 6 copies. Two for mom and I, the rest as gifts for my closest friends' children.
This book is beautiful and has a great story.
