Description

If you buy a British grown tree you can guarantee that you are choosing a more sustainable option with a smaller carbon footprint than an artificial tree. This is a book that children will find enjoyable & encourage them to be pensive on numerous occasions. Being as a person can find comfort & pleasure in a single story, no matter how many times they’ve heard it, I am certain that this very book will provide that to a great number of children. I suppose that is an aspect of what makes storytelling so special & such a stunning pillar in our species. We are gifted the ability to share as well, we are granted the sentiments to enjoy those moments of sharing & I think that coming upon a story that showcases that so beautifully is a treasure, no matter who the book is for.

What Do You See When You Look at a Tree?" is a delightful and thought-provoking picture book that invites readers, both young and old, to embark on a journey of exploration and appreciation of the natural world around them. This book, through its simple yet profound narrative, encourages a deeper contemplation of nature, particularly trees, fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity in its audience. When I see the tree, I notice it exists. There is something to the tree that distinguishes it from nothing. What is that something? St. Thomas Aquinas calls it esse, namely, the act of being—that by which a thing exists ( On Being and Essence, ch. 4). We also know an uncaused cause would have to be absolutely simple. What this means is that it could not be composed of any parts whatsoever, whether physical or metaphysical. We’ve already seen in our reasoning how an uncaused cause would be metaphysically simple in that its nature (essence) would have to be identical to its act of being (existence). Before we start thinking about Christmas tree trends, it's important to get the basics in place so that you can buy the right Christmas tree for your home. Anticipating what you might be thinking, I can’t help but bust out a variation of an old Tina Turner song: “What’s God got to do with it, got to do with it. . . .” God has everything to do with it.WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK AT A TREE? is a thoughtful book that invites children to think about the trees all around them. The story is written in the form of a poem as a series of questions. Instead of just thinking about trees as branches and leaves, the story invites children to consider the ways in which they are living beings who grow and are each unique. Imagine you see the caboose of the coupled train cars mentioned above passing by. What car is the caboose receiving its motion from? You might be inclined to say, “The moving car in front of it.” But then I would ask, “What is that car receiving its motion from?” and you would say, “The car in front of it,” and so on. And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, “What are you seeing, Jeremiah?” And I say, “I am seeing a rod of an almond tree.”

Moreover the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond-tree. The word of the LORD came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” I hope that this book finds its way into the hands of many a growing soul so as to remind them of the wonders we behold on this earth during our short time here.

Beautifully written and illustrated by the aw ard-winning artist Emma Carlisle, What Do You See When You Look At a Tree? urges readers to reconnect with nature by asking questions that encourage critical thinking and reflection on their own development, as well as helping to establish a deeper appreciation for the environment and their place within it.

Growing real Christmas trees provides jobs in rural areas, where employment can be hard to come by. And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see an almond branch.” And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying, 'What art thou seeing, Jeremiah?' And I say, 'A rod of an almond tree I am seeing.' The only other option is that the tree’s act of being must come from some cause outside itself. Such a cause is called an existential cause.Then the LORD said to me, “Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?” And I replied, “I see a branch from an almond tree.” This wonderful picture book explores themes of empathy, mindfulness and personal growth through the eyes of a child. What I loved: This was a lovely book that invites children to think about the world around them. Trees are unique and interesting in all sorts of ways, and the book invites them to think about the different types, features, and the ways that they are living too. Trees live for so long, and the book points out the experiences they may have had and will have all around us. Posed as a series of questions, it is a thoughtful story for young readers that invites them to consider the parts of nature they may have not before. The uncaused cause must also be personal. As pure infinite being, it must have all actuality and perfections. But intelligence and will are perfections. Therefore, the First Cause must have both intelligence and will.

Most garden centres will offer a variety of tree types, and though it's useful to keep in mind the different species, try not to get too hung up on selecting the 'best' one. What's important is whether your love the tree and can visualise it in your home - and that you have the space to accommodate it of course.This wonderful picture book explores themes of empathy, mindfulness and personal growth through the eyes of a child. Beautifully written and illustrated by the award-winning artist Emma Carlisle, What Do You See When You Look At a Tree? urges readers to reconnect with nature by asking questions that encourage critical thinking and reflection on their own development, as well as helping to establish a deeper appreciation for the environment and their place within it. Stunning watercolour and hand-finished artwork draw s parallels to the bestselling The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse, and evokes the classic nostalgia of E. H. Shephard's much-loved Winnie-the-Pooh. And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds. What left me wanting more: As a small thing, the poem can be a bit awkward in places. While it generally has an every other line rhyme, the choices feel a bit stilted in places with words that don't quite rhyme, which can cause some small stumbles when reading aloud. And the word of the LORD came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.”
