32 pages


“Van and Adinolfi (The Perfect Christmas) work in synch to preserve the story’s emotional power…the idea that letting someone go can sometimes be the best way to love them isn’t an easy one to share with children (or parents, for that matter), but Van and Adinolfi do so with grace and aplomb.”  –-Starred Review, Publishers Weekly 


When the Little Tree sees the world around her narrowing, she worries about what life will be like for her Little Seed. She decides to take the biggest risk of all, and let Little Seed find a richer life on her own.

Muon Van is the author of the critically-acclaimed picture books In a Village By the Sea and The Little Tree.
