About the Author
A cubicle-bound office worker by day and illustrator by night, Trung specializes in visual storytelling for children's literature. His notable illustrated picture books are Lawrence of Arabia, a collaboration with the Singapore Hospice Council that talks about the sensitive topic of end-of-life care, and The Reading Tree by Epigram Books, a unique story about lifelong friendship. He has also illustrated books on Asian folklore and cultures, with many published in his home country, Vietnam. Trung received Adobe's Top Talent award for the Illustration category (2019), but more importantly, he is also the recipient of a special gift-his newborn son.
Reviews

I simply loved this book. What a great connection to nature it provides.

With the beauty of this earth in the forefront of our minds, the story of this beautiful tree that spans the life of one reader and helps them create a legacy is transcendent! I so love what the author has said without saying, that our legacy is our children and our stories. It is so important for us to reach out with our kindness to those we love and all that provide for us. A timeless and much-needed lesson of our times.

Another thing that will strike you is the trip down memory lane if you are an avid reader. Of how your love for reading grew and got passed on to your children and your community.

My kids and I often take books to the park and sit and read. This brought up so many fun memories.

A very well-written book with illustrations reminiscent of my childhood storybooks. This would make a great read for kids aged 5-9. My kids and I had wonderful conversations that spanned our love for reading to our responsibility to the environment, and much more.
