With enchanting images of nature and a lyrical storyline, Ann Louise Ramsey's children's picture book Me, the Tree is an inspiring tale about the power of believing in oneself.

Me, the Tree

Struggling to know its true self, one lone pine cone, in a forest of many, searches for an open meadow "where no tree lived before" in order to become the magnificent pine tree that lives within. Through "patient believing" this tiny pine cone fulfills its destiny as a tree and ultimately falls in love with all of life in Ann Louise Ramsey's children's picture book Me, the Tree. Follow the birth of a pine tree in this poetic parable about self-realization as this little pine cone with deep blue eyes embarks on a fanciful journey from seedling to adulthood.


Soon I forgot whether I was tall or small,
and felt myself being me...that is all;

As my heart grew big with love for the sun,
I tripled my size and surprised everyone.

Midwest Book Review
Like Alvin Tresselt's classic "The Dead Tree", the life of a tree is the foundation for this parable about self-realization. Tucked inside its pinecone cocoon, the seed travels on the evening breeze to its new home in the meadow. With a lot of help from the rain, the pinecone breaks down and the seed is free to sprout.

Deep in the meadow floor the sapling struggles to fulfill its destiny to become a tall tree. As it reaches toward the sun, the tiny tree provides shelter for wildflowers and birds. The tree also learns that rain and snow and wind are all necessary in order to grow strong. In fact it is through loving nature that the tree understands the true meaning of its own roots.

Ramsey's digital, enhanced photos are the perfect medium for illustrating both the power and sensitivity of nature. The pine cone's deep blue eyes create a personality and an emotional attachment to the story. The eyes will certainly capture children's attention – much like Hidden Pictures – while they hunt for them on each page as the sapling grows into a tree. And in turn the little tree's story will open their eyes to the wonders of nature. Meanwhile adults will discover a poetic chronicle that reminds us what really matters in our lives. The universal theme of individuality gives "Me, the Tree" an enduring quality reminiscent of Douglas Wood's "Old Turtle". I recommend this book for all ages.
