The Tree Watcher by Christopher P. Stanley
The simplest things, the things around us, the things we fail to truly notice as adults when we lose our sense of wonder at the world become a bonding moment for a father and son. The majesty of trees, as seen from the ground, the opportunity to realize all they truly are, the rustling of their leaves, the opening arms of their branches, the quiet giants who stand tall around us, all seen through the eyes of a child is magical. The eyes of the father are re-opened to the mysteries of the lives these trees have seen.
Christopher P. Stanley has taken the beauty of the world he shared h his son and created a wonderfully illustrated book to be shared by families, read to younger children and used as a starting block for discovering more of the hidden beauty that we come across every day. Enter this magically world and re-discover that feeling of awe through the eyes of a child.
The Tree Watcher is the perfect bedtime tale, rich with beautiful drawings, thoughts and sharing that bring us all closer to the amazing planet we live on.
