One, Two, TreeBook - 2013
One, Two, Tree! pairs the sophistication of an art book for children with the accessibility of a read-aloud nursery rhyme. This paperback edition with French flaps features brilliant original art by Durga Bai, a Gond tribal woman artist from central India most well-known for her work in the handmade book, The Night Life of Trees . Together the playful images and verse bring to life this vivacious and colorful tree of animals. From the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India, the Gonds are a community of highly visual people. They surround themselves with their stunning art, which is traditionally painted on the mud floors and walls of their homes. Hailing from a densely forested region, the tree is at the heart of their art, providing a rich source of inspiration. One, Two, Tree! is a unique and accessible way of introducing even very young children to this exceptional art form.
