Nye, N. S. (1998). The Tree is Older Than You Are: A Bilingual Gathering of Poems and Stories from Mexico with Paintings by Mexican Artists. Aladdin. https://www.colorincolorado.org/book/tree-older-you-are-bilingual-gathering-poems-and-stories-mexico-paintings-mexican-artists
“Art combines with poetry and short prose pieces all by creators from Mexico for a culturally specific but emotionally universal literary experience. Stories are everywhere; you simply need to find them. Perhaps as one poet suggests in ‘The Lemon Tree’: ‘the tree/is older than you are/and you might find stories/in its branches.’ Edited by Naomi Shihab Nye.”
