“The Red Tree” is a 28-page full color picture book intended for beginning readers. Author Michael W. Barnard discovered the red tree in the fall of 2015 and followed the red tree through all four seasons, tracking the changes of the tree, and surrounding flora and fauna. All of the photographs in this book were taken by author Michael W. Barnard in and around Fairfield Iowa – except for the cows, who live happily in the Swiss Alps. This book was created over a two year period. The book is a soft-cover 8.5″ x 11″ high quality, saddle-stitched publication.

“Love, love, love the book… we picked up the mail at the post office and there was this beautiful book and guess what? [my grandson] could read lots of it because of the way it was written. It’s perfect. He loved being able to read it with me. It was really fun…. Not only does this book contain beautiful photos, it also provides the basis for excellent discussion around the life cycle of deciduous plants and looking at change over time.” JG – Vermont
