My Dad is a Tree


Jon AgeeClick here for biography

Do you want to be a tree? It's easy.

Pretend your arms are branches, your body is a trunk, and your legs are roots. Then stand in one place and see what happens! If your parent is as patient as the dad in this story, you might get to stay outside all . . . day . . . long!

Even though, as the story builds, many different creatures alight on Dad, he gets wet, and night falls, despite himself he enters into his daughter's make-believe world and finds himself relaxing and having fun. Themes of mindfulness and empathy with nature accompany the feel-good exuberance as father and daughter play together outside.
