Beatrice Was a Tree (PRE-ORDER for 5/11/2021)
By: Joyce Hesselberth
Beatrice dreams of becoming a tree. She grows roots and leaves, and she stretches her branches toward the sky.
When it’s time to go to bed, Beatrice imagines how much fun it would be to stay outside with the trees all night long. If she were a tree, she would have a trunk and branches and lots of leaves. Her roots would reach deep. She would catch the morning sun with her limbs and cradle a bird’s nest in her branches. And when the air turned crisp, Beatrice would wait patiently for spring.
