Do Trees Nap? is a beautifully illustrated allegory of a child's faith walk written and illustrated by award-winning watercolor and mixed-media artist Trish McKinney. With illustrations inspired by a conversation with the artist's daughter and time spent living in the South Carolina low country, this setting provides a stunning background for Talitha Koum's childhood discovery of faith when she meets the Creator of all things.

Do Trees Nap? is the story of Talitha Koum, a willful little girl who refuses to take a nap. One day, in a seemingly perfect plan, she tries to trick her mother into skipping nap time by asking the unexpected question, "Do trees nap?" Her mother sends Talitha on a journey to meet Wise Tree and receives an answer that gives much deeper meaning for her life.
