~Written and Illustrated by Lynn Darby
Lynn Darby beautifully illustrates this enchanting and intriguing tale. Her diagrams of the elves' ingenious plan to open the tree captures her keen imagination.
The story instills in young readers that unique ideas lie within them eager to emerge and that it's important for them to allow their ideas to flow so they can make a difference in the world.
I recommend picking up a copy which is available in two versions, one for children 9-12 and one for Pre-K. Each book includes a Wooden Shamrock that glows in the dark after it's held under a light source, a Blanket Cloud with velcro backing, and a satin ribbon Tree of Life Bookmark with charm.
