Why I have Written these Books

When I was in high school I use to go to a friend’s farm on the weekends and school holidays. One time I fell off a horse and although I did not hurt myself, I didn’t like how my friend made me feel. She laughed that hard, I didn’t know what to say or do so I just started laughing as well. As the school years went on, my friend would continue to bring up this story to embarrass me and to belittle me in front of all our friends. It use to make me feel very small and sad. I did not know how to deal with this, so continued to just keep my mouth shut and deal with it.

After school, we went our separate ways and I continued allowing people to treat me disrespectfully. It became a part of my life for a very long time.

In my late 40’s I decided to have some life coaching and this incident came up as a part of my past I needed to deal with. It was bought to my attention that I had allowed this behaviour to happen and my coach asked me, “Why did I not say something to my friend or others?” My reply was “I didn’t know how to!”

At that moment, I realised there and then, I had allowed people for 30 years to treat me disrespectfully and bully me. I decided that was not going to happen anymore and that now was the start of my new normal life.

From my experiences I feel very passionately about helping children, teenagers and adults overcome obstacles like bullying and learn to speak up, ask questions and live a more abundant and intentional life.

I hope you find these books helpful.

The Tree House Adventures Books

These books are for mum, dad, nannies, educators, friend’s and family. Enjoy reading these with your children and help answer some of their questions. Talk to your children and teach them to ask questions when they are not sure and help them to understand that when it doesn’t feel right inside, to speak up.

Our aim is to PREVENT and MANAGE bullying within schools.

Our Educational Books include the following  titles

Mr. Tree saves Simon from the Bully is a book about a boy who is being bullied. He does not know why or what he has done to deserve this. This is one example of how bullying someone can affect a person. It also shows how the problem sometimes lies with the person doing the bullying, not the person being bullied. Read about how Mr Tree helps Simon and through conversation helps Simon to understand why he is being bullied. I wonder what happens that Simon needs help with? I also wonder how Mr Tree helps Simon?

Mr. Tree saves his friends from the Storm is a story about an unlikely group of animals coming together as a team and working through obstacles. I wonder how Mr Tree helps his friends in the storm? I wonder what sorts of animals come together? Do they stay friends? How does Mr. Tree help them through the storm?

Sometimes, if we are having a sleepover for the very first time, we can often feel scared and lonely. Mr Tree and the Scary Sleepover can show us how using kind words when speaking with our friends helps our friends to be happy.

At some point in our lives, we may have to deal with one or more of these issues.  Treating our friends with kindness is very important.

Also, wouldn’t it be fun to learn about the environment, for example, how are trees assessed? Furthermore, we can read about what happens in these assessments. Also, how to keep trees happy, healthy and safe in your local parks, schools and of course, your own home. Mr Tree and his health assessment explains all.

Unfortunately, there are times when a tree needs to be removed. Trees often look healthy on the outside when in fact they are not healthy at all. This particular tree has lost a large limb and the remaining tree won’t survive. Read about why this tree needs to be removed and why it won’t survive having lost this large limb. Also, read all about the characters in the book The Big Tree Job and learn all about the equipment used to remove a tree.  Did you know that trees are 100% recyclable? Check out our animation which is based on this book.

Come along and join the gang and have some fun.
