Mother Oak

Because the only path into the woods ends at the river, and the river is filled with hungry crocodiles, crossing the river is forbidden. The mysterious wild reveals intoxicating perfumes, lilac honey and an ancient Red Oak, Mother Oak. Change is imminent, so Mother Oak rallies Lady Blue, the wind, the sun and the rain to tuck her remaining acorn away into earth’s cocoon. The acorn loses its tiny tan cap in the tumble, gets dumped upon, danced upon and rained upon’all to become the most essential Red Oak in the woods. Mother Oak is a tapestry, illustrating the broad and fine brush strokes in nature. Mother Oak prods the imagination, encouraging young readers to venture forth. Paperback Look Inside
