In Tree of Life, Bash offers a unique glimpse into the interconnectedness of life on the African savannah through the baobab, which the African people call "mother."

Bash describes the life cycle of a tree that lives on the African savannah and the insects, birds, adn animals that rely on it for home, food, and survival. . . . The illustrations . . . are breathtaking." --Kirkus, pointer review "Complementing Bash's calligraphic text are stunning watercolor illustrations Ýin which¨ she beautifully portrays the sparse African landscape. . . . A subject rarely treated in picture book format, this will make a beautiful introduction to the African ecosystem." --Booklist, starred review
