Whimsical musings on Life, Love and One Tree...

The Unity Tree: A Whimsical Muse on Cosmic Consciousness - Jennifer Sodini

My children and I love this colourful and thoughtful book, which opens with the most beautiful dedication. "For it is through the darkness of the evening that we are able to see the stars. Without this darkness, we would never get to experience the beauty of the cosmos, or understand the little bits of light in life that shine through the void."

That alone should be enough to tell you that this book is something different.

My two under 4's adore the illustrations - humorous and bright yet with complex layers and meanings, which are brought forth in discussions the concepts explored stimulates. Its a gentle read but with depth and perception, a refreshing change from the slough of gender specific "children's books" with garish explosions or saccharin platitudes.

A fantastic example of #WhyWeNeedDiverseBooks which I'm sure will prove of interest to all ages, and grow with the reader in their understanding of collective consciousness. After all, we are all connected.
