A stunning and sensitive portrait of the strength within each of us and the nourishment we receive from the natural world, by the New York Times bestselling creator of the acclaimed My Heart and The Book of Mistakes Through poetic text and exquisite illustrations of children reveling in nature, this picture book explores the various ways we as human beings are strong, creative, and connected to others. Each of us is like a tree, with roots and fruit, and an enduring link to everything else in nature. "The tree in me is strong. It bends in the wind, and has roots that go deep . . . to where other roots reach up toward their own trunk-branch-crown and sky." As Corinna Luyken did in her award-winning My Heart, she again provides an invigorating conversation-starter that contains a world of truths--about self-esteem, community, and living a meaningful life.   Awards and Accolades for My Heart New York Times Best Seller PNBA Book Award Winner Indie Next List Pick (Top 10) Nerdies Best Picture Books of the Year Book Page Best of the Year Brain Pickings Best Books of the Year   * "This must-buy for librarians and teachers has myriad educational uses; it begs to be read aloud, and it is a masterful blending of text and illustration." —School Library Journal, starred review * "Soothing, simple phrasing and masterful printmaking harness metaphors to make a heart's complexity accessible to children . . .
