The Life of Tree
Darwin: Metaphorically Speaking

The Life of Tree is a fictional story that takes children on a metaphorical journey about the difficult times in life like watching family violence. Incorporating metaphorical narratives with traditional cultural imagery from Arnhem land, this picture book invites Aboriginal children into a safe place to express what is too hard to say, celebrate their strengths and receive the help they need to heal.
