If I Were a Tree, What Would I Be?

By Margaret Cheasebro, illus. by Ayin Visitacion

Balboa/Hay House (2019, 21pp.)

"If I were a tree," Francisco, a young visitor to Grandfather Tree, tells his friend Katie, "I would know when you are sad and give you a hug with my branches."

The two are clambering on the huge cottonwood in the meadow together and contemplating the healing ways of nature.

"If I were a tree, I'd listen to your stories and laugh at the funny parts," Katie says.

Author Cheasebro, a reiki master and former elementary school counselor who lives in Farmington, imparts a simple, yet profound lesson, accompanied by bright, catchy illustrations: by observing, listening and empathizing, the ancient tree will "ground" one and provide safety.

Grandfather Tree is shown with a kindly, gnarled, wise face.

The children decide to visit the tree more often. "Can you feel that in your heart?" Francisco wonders. "The tree likes having us as friends."
