Getting set to launch the second edition of The Wish Trees: How Planting Trees Can Help Make the World a Better Place.
The Wish Trees was originally just an environmental education tool for Andrea’s children’s tree planting work in Africa but it grew in popularity and tree quotes from the book started going viral like:
“I’m planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.”― Andrea Koehle Jones, The Wish Trees
Andrea is now seeking representation for other environmentally themed picture books and a middle grade manuscript she is currently revising.
Andrea loves giving copies to children and teachers she works with especially at schools with environmental education programs as well as orphanages in Africa. There has been more interest in the book recently due to climate change, so she added a new updated version with a non-fiction STEM how-to feature called How to Plant a Wish Tree.
Contact Andrea if you hear of an outstanding agent interested in environmentally themed children’s books.
