The Blue Spruce

by Mario Cuomo

Papa told Mario that having a house with a yard and a tree to call our own was his very special dream. Papa was excited about moving his family to their new home, after living behind their grocery store for many years, and sharing his dream with them. Papa and Mario loved the magnificent Blue Spruce that grew in the front yard of their new home, often sharing quiet moments in its cool shadow. Each year the Blue Spruce grew taller and stronger, holding within its branches their secrets and dreams. Then, one evening, unusually strong winds began to blow as dark clouds filled the sky. Mario watched anxiously through the window as the Blue Spruce fought against the winds . . . With colorful illustrations, Royal Academy of Arts graduate, Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen, captures this endearing life lesson between former Governor Mario Cuomo and his Papa.
