When her mother wants to go to the grocery store, Emma shows just how much she does not like that idea by crying nonstop. Her mother tries everything she can think of to get Emma ready to go to the store and to stop crying. Looking up at the sky in defeat, Emma’s mother gets an idea when she sees the trees overhead waving in the wind. From that day forward Emma is friends with the trees everywhere and she speaks to them as they speak to her. Enjoy this story and then see how you too can speak with trees and have them speak back.
