The Song of the Tree
  • The Song of the Tree

  • Bird loves the towering tree that grows in the jungle, but when the season changes she must say goodbye until next year.

    Then one day Bird wonders: what happens to the tree when she flies away? As she discovers the stories of the other creatures who live in the tree, Bird learns to sing a new song.

    Lyrical, heart-warming and beautifully illustrated, this new fable from Coralie Bickford-Smith is a tale about growing up and finding our own way of exploring the world, and a celebration of belonging.
