The Red TreeBook - 2003
When a child awakens with dark leaves drifting into her bedroom, she feels that "sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to, and things go from bad to worse." Feelings too complex for words are rendered into an imaginary landscape where the child wanders, oblivious to the glimmer of promise in the shape of a tiny red leaf. Everything seems hopeless until the child returns to her room and sees the red tree. At that perfect moment of beauty and purity, the child smiles and her world stirs anew.

This beautiful book deals with the way the world looks when one is feeling deep sadness. An accessible and moving book for both children and adults, it deals with the realities of depression, but ends with hope.
