Ella saw the tree by Robert Vescio
Big Sky Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781925520378
Picture book. Highly recommended. When you can't see the trees right in front of you what else are you missing?
This is a well illustrated book, the pictures help you to believe that Ella is doing all of the things she is imagining. Until one day Ella notices the tree in her back yard, it has always been there but she has not noticed it before. Ella is worried about the tree, and mum helps her to stop and look at what is happening now, to see what is right in front of her.
This is a lovely story about living in the moment and appreciating what we have right in front of us.
