Only a Tree Knows How to Be a Tree Summary

Only a Tree Knows How to Be a Tree by Mary Murphy

"Every person has their own thoughts in their head,
and their own feelings in their heart.
Every single person is different.
And only they know how to be them."
Only a Tree knows how to be a tree! But trees are just the start - everything and everyone is different and special. Birds, dogs, fishes, people - and our Earth itself - all have their own unique place in our world. And only you know how to be you.

With a sure touch, this book shows every child its place in the world, and how everyone and everything is both part of the whole and special in itself.

Only a Tree Knows How to Be a Tree Reviews

"Plenty to look at, enjoy and talk about. Nothing is too insignificant to celebrate here, from the tiniest creature to the entire universe. Share, pause, reflect and feel awe."

* Red Reading Hub *

"A perfect example of how picture books can open young minds to big philosophical issues. Perfectly paced and pageset, this title will have universal, international appeal."

* Achuka - Book of the Day *

"The simple text has been hand lettered, and the painterly illustrations include interesting dry textures. Even though many illustrations include tiny details, this will work well for group as well as one-to-one. A simple message delivered effectively."

* Kirkus Reviews (US) *

"All living creatures have a special place in the world in this extraordinary exploration of the concept of self for very young readers by Irish picture-book creator Mary Murphy. The simple narrative and joyful illustrations celebrating a world full of remarkable creatures, reminds little ones that we are all unique, and that we are the only ones who know how to be us."

* Irish Examiner *
