Maria Gianferrari has climbed fig trees in Italy, stood under stately coastal redwoods and twisted Torrey pines, marveled at mitten-shaped sassafras leaves, colorful coral trees and sawtooth oak acorn nests. She lives with her family, including dog, Maple, in a house encircled by trees. She is the author of Be a Tree!.

Alexandria Giardino is a tree-hugger, mountain lover, bike rider, and faithful sidekick to two Boston terriers. She is the author of Me + Tree, and her previous picture books include the award-winning Ode to an Onion and The Good Song. She’s also a Spanish translator, college professor, vegan chef in training, and proud mama to a teenage boy who is almost as tall as a tree.

Corinna Luyken is the author/illustrator of The Tree in Me; as well as the New York Times bestseller, My Heart; and the award winning The Book of Mistakes. She lives near the Salish Sea in Washington State, with her husband, daughter, two small cats, and a just-planted pink dogwood tree.
