Zachary and Claire Lanthierabout this book: Look inside the world of a tree and what it really means to have a heart of...wood?
This tree isn't like the other trees- she doesn't want to act like the other trees but eventually those cute little acorns melt her heart soft as leaves.
This was an inspired story because of the fact that, through tragic circumstances, left me unable to have children I knew there were some women out there who take advantage of that gift when they should seize the opportunity before its too late because we don't know what life has in store for us. It was a fun story to write, but it was not easy. I wanted to have a large family with lots of children and I hope this message is a eye opener for all. If not for yourselves, could you do it for a women who will never get that chance back?
I also hand drew and colored each of the pictures in this book, and then consequently had to find a big enough printer to scan the entire image. Lo and behold I ended up using my own scanner to copy them because it showed more detail than FedEx's scanner, even if it did cut of a little of the picture. It was such a hassle, and then I found out I was missing multiple pictures, I cried more than once. It was a story that I needed to write for myself, to get my message out there, and when our illustrator bailed on us last minute I knew I had to do it myself. Never again will I illustrate a kids book, but the end result was a good one!
