From Tree to Tree Ó Chrann go Crann

This is not, exactly, a story about a Christmas tree -- though it could be. It is a story about trust, hope, resilience, friendship, and kindness, told in the journey of a child, a few trees, and some birds. Good listening as Advent unfolds, I’m thinking, and in any season.

The narrator is Mairéad Ni Mhaonaigh. You’ve met her here before with her fiddle and her singing and her songwriting, with Altan, T with the Maggies, and through a song on Cathie Ryan’s album Through Wind and Rain.

Ó Chrann go Crann the story is called, From Tree to Tree, and you may hear it as Gaeilge, in Irish, and in English.

How beautiful. I actually love children's stories. (I often buy such books for myself.) Like this story, they often have much to offer both kids and adults.
