Trees: ...The Green Testament Reviews
It has been said that a picture is worth 1,000 words. The pictures drawn on each page would take at least 1,000 words to fully describe everything portrayed there. I believe Ya’akov Kirschen was inspired in the same way as the prophets of old when they recorded their prophecies for the ages.
A history that is often made too complicated is revealed in its natural simplicity through this excellent graphic portrayal. This is a five-star presentation that is wonderful for all ages.
Kirschen produced a very inspiring book years ago; this is an udated reprint. I loved this book so much because it inspired me to follow his example. I highly recommend it.
Wonderful book. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Very emotionally satisfying. Creation, Israel, and the Covenant between G-d and the Chosen People.
I want to quote GoodReads description of the book: "A graphic novel by political cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen that "explores the Jewish People's connection with the land of Israel and explains how the Zionist tree-planting compulsion holds the hope for the future of the entire planet."
Trees is one of our all-time favorite books! Have given dozens as gifts over the years. Bones tells a story that is so compelling members of almost every nation can identify and gain from repeating it! Read it to your kids at least once a year and gift it to those you love!
