The Tree I See - A Message for All
All of us will encounter a dark moment during our lifetime, but it is important to remember that loved ones will remain nearby in our hearts, minds, and memories, whether visible or invisible. As the light shines through, we realize that our loved ones will never leave us and stay by our side through any difficult life event we may encounter.


Our story is for toddlers and children of all ages, offering elements to improve a child's "working memory" and re-call ability as they read. The Tree I See offers a consistent illustrative theme and gradual character integration, to maintain focus and build upon your child's literacy skills. Watch and enjoy your children, as they learn to read on their own while exploring our magical, engaging, fully interactive storybook. Fun for the whole family... This is a Storybook APP you don't want to miss ! Some are even calling our story a 'pre-quel' to Shel Silversteins - The Giving Tree.
