One reviewer on Amazon doesn't like that the author didn't say anything about the trees or the location of the trees in his book. The next reviewer says - well - you didn't get the intention of the book, clearly stated in it, which says:
"Because this book is not simply about seeing pictures of interesting trees, it is about shifting our minds and awareness to experience the world and ourselves differently. For all the variety of trees, the book is really about the experience of being in among them."
This experience of being among them - without thoughts or lables - is what a child experiences, and the same experience I try to take the reader to in Here You Are.
