Dr. Jim Conroy and I (Basia Alexander) assembled this delightful little book called MESSAGES FROM TREES; A COLORING AND ACTIVITY BOOK FOR THE YOUNG AND YOUNG-AT-HEART ... but it's really the trees who wrote it.

Then, their messages became this coloring and activity book... and their photos were turned into sketches that could be colored in!
