If Instead of A Person imaginatively explores the wisdom to be learned from living as a tree. Using child-friendly rhyming verse, Courtney Defriend thoughtfully ponders a tree’s steadfast connection and vital contribution to life on earth. Reinforced by Terra Mar’s powerful illustrations, If Instead of A Person invites readers to become change agents that respect the interconnectedness of nature and humanity.
