  1. The Man Who Planted Trees is my all time favourite but another one worth mentioning is: The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein . . both heartwarming with good life messages.

  2. The Magic Faraway Tree – the first time as a child where the idea of the tree shimmers in the imagination. It is the tree as eco-systyem, tree as an anchor point for magic and myth, tree as symbol of both change and stability.

    1. Great choice David! Now you need to nomitate it via RBGE – just follow the link in the post
