The book opens with a newly sprouted, barely visible tree on the verso page saying hello to a fully grown tree on the recto page. As the baby tree matures, the older tree guides it and provides wisdom about navigating trials like the wind. The older tree remains positive, though, encouraging the smaller tree to embrace changes that time brings. As the new tree thrives, readers watch the elder tree lose leaves and ultimately collapse during series of wordless spreads depicting a severe storm. But even a downed tree has a purpose, and with the deceased tree’s words carried close by the wind, its seeds are scattered and a new tree begins to grow, starting the cycle once again.
