The Everyday Tree
A full color children's picture book.
The Everyday Tree is the story of two children and their search for the true meanings of holidays, as most have been lost, forgotten or turned into a 3-day weekend. Through their discovery of an old house on an island, and its inhabitants, The "Professor JABU" and friends, the children are introduced to the Everyday Tree and its wondrous ability to turn everyday into a holiday by placing on it a symbolic ornament that celebrates the "specialness" of that day.

Be it a fallen leaf, a photo of a puppy hugging, a saxophone, a worn torn shoe or a peace sign, their exploration into the stories the tree has to tell leads them to a history lesson on the origin of holidays and an awakening of their own inherent abilities to make each day a holiday in its own unique way.
