A beautiful companion to Demi's classicThe Empty Pot.
In this new Chinese fable, Ping returns and deals with the selfish and greedy Tan Tan, who owns a beautiful house and a beautiful shady tree, but who does not share. Ping turns Tan Tan's greed into his own gain, but even with his new-found wealth, Ping is true to his generous nature—there is room for everyone. Simply told and beautifully illustrated,The Shady Tree is sure to become a classic.

The Shady Tree:

"Demi retells a Chinese folktale using artistic elements that reflect the story’s culture. . . . Pair withThe Little Tree That Would Not Share(2016), by Nicoletta Costa, for another way to be reminded of the virtues and joy of sharing." —Booklist

The Empty Pot:

"A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as for the simplicity of its story." -School Library Journal

Florence Nightingale:

"Students will linger on each page, soaking in the details and seeing connections with modern-day practices that were inspired by Nightingale's tireless work. Demi's attention to detail and thorough descriptions make this biography one to own." -School Library Journal

"A lovely picture book celebrating the Lady with the Lamp." -Booklist
