You Are a Beautiful Beginning

It is not wishing to be different.
It is learning to love being you.

It is not the end of your story.
It is a beautiful beginning, too.

Three children come together to build a magnificent and cozy treehouse for all their forest friends. Along the way, they discover the truth behind the adage that "it is not the destination, but the journey."

Kelsey Garrity-Riley's inviting, gently magical art pairs beautifully with a lyrical, deceptively simple text to create a picture book that is equal parts inspirational story and peaceful lullaby.
