Author Erna Michalow will be launching Whose Trees Are These? (Peanut Butter Press) this Saturday January 26 at 2:00 pm in McNally Robinson's Atrium event space.
Have you ever wondered about the role of trees in nature and their relationship to the rest of the environment? The author weaves the story's other main characters - the sun, rocks, earth, water, air, fire, animals and people - into scenic treed landscapes and brings them all to life through the use of lyrical prose. Each character in turn claims ownership of the trees, but the trees have the final say. Scientific details in both the text and illustrations depict the natural beauty of our world.
Erna Michalow is a graduate of the University of Manitoba and taught elementary school for many years. She lives in Winnipeg where she is an active participant in several art clubs. Her inspiration for this book arose from a club challenge requiring members to create their own short book.Categories: Winnipeg, Event News, Ongoing Kids Events in Winnipeg
