The Tree Climbing Country Girl
You are Never too Small to Dream Big or Achieve your Goals
When Shailey’s siblings and cousins leave her out of their games because she’s too little, she finds the biggest tree on the farm: a huge mango tree. Determined to prove them wrong, Shailey scales the trunk, swings from the branches, and perches amongst a rainbow cluster of mangoes. With self-confidence, strength, and courage, Shailey catches her family’s attention and teaches them a lesson in kindness.
To the little girl who was always told that she couldn't, but was brave enough to do it all.
S. P-Weissman grew up an adventurous young tree-climber in Guyana surrounded by her many siblings and cousins. She wrote The Tree-Climbing Country Girl to encourage and inspire young people to go after what they want, despite self-doubts and discouragement from others. The Tree-Climbing Country Girl is her first book. She lives in Toronto with her husband and young son.
