“The Spirit Tree at Toomer’s Corner, 1 & 2”
Thank you to all of our customers for their reviews. War Eagle!
My granddaughter loved book 1 and has really enjoyed book 2. When she comes over she wants to read the book about the “TREES”. Looking forward to all your future books. Also, she thinks it is so “cool’ because her name appears in the front with your autographs. I have gotten our books at Christmas Village the last 2 years. Thanks for such an adorable book!!!!

One of the best children’s books on the market. Especially for Auburn fans. It teaches a great lesson about forgiveness and family, which are values each child should learn.

Sweet Auburn book- I bought this for an adult AU fan who was already familiar with the book. It is well illustrated, colorful and attractive for children. I just wish there were similar book for adults – with actual photos – relating the wonderful history of Toomer’s Corner and its trees. I recommend it for the younger set!

I am a lifelong Auburn fan, and I think this book is so precious. It does, in fact, touch upon the poisoning of the trees at Toomer’s Corner as another reviewer stated, but the message is that the spirit of the trees will live on despite what happens to them physically. Unfortunately the poisoning is now a part of their history but this book reminds us that the trees are more than just trees, as almost all Auburn fans know. The tradition and the memories are what’s important and I think that is what we should be discussing with our children so that the spirit will live on forever. The illustrations are also beautiful, which makes it a keepsake for Auburn fans of all ages. War Eagle!
