Event Details

Story time at Waterstones:  The Tree – by Neal Layton.

On the eve of Earth Day, join award winning illustrator author Neal Layton for an interactive reading of his book ‘The Tree’.
For the rabbits, birds, and squirrels, the big tree is home. But then come two new arrivals with wonderful plans, all ready to create their dream house. What will it mean for the animal families if their tree is cut down? With empathy and imagination, ‘The Tree’ offers a hopeful outlook in this simple and powerful fable about the harmony of the natural world.
Praise for The Tree…
