Newly Released Children's Book, Skinny Little Tree, Teaches the Value of Living Through All 'Seasons'
One little boy learns big lessons through the natural cycle of the seasons. Skinny Little Tree follows the life of a tree through wintry loss and the promise of spring.
Cartersville, GA – A little boy learns the lessons of life's ups and downs through nature in the new children's book, Skinny Little Tree.
A young boy wonders why the Skinny Little Tree smiles, weeps, worries, dances and sings. Skinny Little Tree answers the boy's curiosity in her own way, bravely weathering the swings of the seasons. Through her honest transparent expressions, an unnamed boy will learn the value of living through all that life brings.

Author Jayme Martin wrote of Skinny as she watched a dogwood grow outside her bedroom window. Through the years, Skinny came to life and “told” her story to Martin – of the bluebirds that sang, and how wiggly worms tickled her toes, of the wintry times of loss and the good surprises that bloomed with spring … all the things that make life, life.
Stunningly illustrated by Clark Andrews Jr. Skinny Little Tree shares valuable lessons with young readers about the good and bad that life brings and why all those cycles serve a valuable purpose.

About the author:
Author Jayme Martin is a Texas girl, who married and had her first of five sons just two years after high school. One hundred eighty seasons later, she's become the woman she is today … honest, creative, compassionate and by most accounts “weird.” She lives in Cartersville, Georgia. Illustrator Clark Andrews Jr. grew up in Alabama, and although conflicted by a severe speech impediment, he was determined to communicate love, hope and faith through art. He now lives in Birmingham, Alabama, where he works as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator.
