A little tree, guided by her family circle and forest friends, can’t wait to grow tall and strong
Little Sap can’t wait to grow tall and strong just like her mother and touch the sky. But growing takes time. Luckily for Little Sap, she has her family circle close by and a forest of friends, above and below ground, to help guide her up.
