Tree - Life 

Over the course of many years a tree changes its face. For each season there are different games and festivities, rural scenes and moments of happiness in the lives of the people who visit it - whether for May Day dancing, a romantic tryst in the shade, or apple harvesting. As a motto for each scene on the full-paged, naïve-style tree pictures there is a line of poetry, accompanied by a small detail sketch. When leafing through all the pictures, certain parallels become meaningful - as time elapses for the tree over the course of a year, so it elapses in the life of a person. The poetic charm of this book will enchant both children and adults. (6+)
