Bookclub Guide

Thank you for sharing The Happiness Tree with your children! We provide many ideas to deepen their understanding of various themes in the artistic, scientific and personal realms. From language arts exercises to outdoor activities, we encourage thoughtful observation and wish to awaken the children's reverence for the natural world. Trees provide beauty, shelter, fuel, food and clean air. They also inspire art and poetry, by arousing emotions and filling our senses. Indeed, trees stand for our very best qualities as human beings.We hope to inspire your students to express their own original ideas and, like the little acorn we meet in the opening scene, begin journeys, among friends, with the motto:"Everything good begins with me." TOur very best wishes,Lisa Burnett Bossi & Andrea Alban Gosline
