“The Mighty Maple”: an enduring story of a mother tree’s stories and advice to her daughter. “The Mighty Maple” is the creation of published author BB Philip, a married mother of two grown children who lives in rural Pennsylvania, where she loves to go for walks in the woods and work in her garden.

Philip shares the sage advice of Mother Maple to the young Mighty Maple, “‘I have seen many things in my lifetime, daughter. Listen to my teachings and remember.

‘When the strong winds blow and try to bring you down, stand tall and be ready for the attack. Let the fierce winds know that they are only here for a short time. Show them that you are strong. They might bend you, but they will not break you.’

‘Yes, Mother, I will remember.’

‘When the days become hot and the rains do not come for a long time, stretch your roots to find that glorious living water far deep within the ground.’

‘Yes, Mother, I will remember.’

‘When the beautiful pure white snow falls heavy on you, don’t fret when you lose some of your twigs and branches. This will be the time of cleansing. Out with the old and in with the new.’

‘Yes, Mother, I will remember. Why are you telling me all of this?’

‘The day will come when I will not be beside you anymore. Remember my teachings so you can carry on.’”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, BB Philip’s new book beautifully illustrates the long-standing tradition of verbally passing down lore and wisdom to help firmly ground young ones in context of history and with ample guidance for facing the uncertain future.

BB Philip, a lover of nature and of children, combines both in this unforgettable story to teach children to stand strong and remember their roots.
