Britta visits her two favorite trees, Apple and Magnolia, every day. Though she can't explain it, she's sure they are best friends! Then one day, Magnolia’s branches start to droop. Is there anything Britta—or Apple—can do to help? After all, unusual friendships can be the most powerful of all.
With a lyrical story and vibrant art, Apple and Magnolia unveils the extraordinary connections between trees and the wondrous bonds between all living things. The book includes an author’s note offering facts about how trees communicate with one another. A downloadable discussion guide with more information will be available February 2022 at flyawaybooks.com/resources.
“Nana’s assertions about the power of ‘unusual friendships’ encourage readers to consider this heartwarming tale in both literal and figurative ways. . . . What’s not to love about this endearing and effervescent picture book?” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Emotive, whimsical illustrations reminiscent of children’s drawings enliven this story about the power of friendship.” —Foreword Reviews (starred review)
