I’LL TAKE CARE OF YOU
A tiny seed finds itself lost in the world, but with care from the Sky, Earth, and Sun, it grows up to be a beautiful apple tree.
When the tree meets a bird in need of help, it offers its branches as shelter and shows little readers the magic of being cared for and taking care.
This comforting tale celebrates the harmonious relationship between birds and trees and can help little readers appreciate the care they receive from their family and friends every day. In return, children will learn that they can also care for others and cultivate empathy and kindness.
With warm, colorful illustrations and a timely message of care and community, I’ll Take Care of You offers a soothing story before bedtime, or anytime on tough days.
