Climbing Trees in Art and Illustration

Barbara Cooney (American, 1917-2000) Jo reading a book, Little Women, written by Louisa May Alcott 1955

Did you climb trees as a kid? I went to the park at the end of the street with my best friend. My friend used a tip from her grandmother: Tree climbing must be done barefoot. I followed this advice, but never made it any higher than this guy. Meanwhile, my friend was as high as a three story building. We were completely unsupervised.
