Bilingual English/Spanish. An imaginary tale of self-discovery told by a child who grows, learns about the natural world, embraces others, and is free to become who he or she is meant to be--a child as unique as a tree.

What does it mean to be like a tree?
For one young child, it all begins
as a tiny seed
that is free to grow
and reach out to others
while standing strong and tall-
just like a tree in the natural world.

With this gentle and imaginative story about becoming your fullest self, Maya Christina Gonzalez empowers young readers to dream and reach ... and to be as free and unique as trees.
