Author Karen Schaufeld’s “The Lollipop Tree” Is An Inspiring Story For Children And Adults

Follow us on the exciting journey of a strong and proud little tree! Once remarked upon for her tall stature and growing limbs, an incredible storm leaves her scarred and the tree must fight all odds to regain the strength and beauty once marveled at by passersby. The Lollipop Tree is a beautiful and unusual story that young readers will come to love through seasons of change.

“The Lollipop Tree is a story of perseverance in the face of adversity,” says author Karen Schaufeld. “I hope that readers will be able to connect and share in the triumph and travails of this young tree as she navigates the seasons.”
