The Story of Our Tree

The Story of Our Tree

In this delightful, science-packed picture book, readers will join two very different groups of young friends as they each plant a tree. In a city garden, one group of children plants an oak tree and learns how it will become a maker of oxygen, a cleaner of the air, a feeder of the soil, and a home for thousands of tiny creatures. And in the Sahel region of Africa, another group of young friends plants a tree as part of Africa’s Great Green Wall. Their tree will be a source of income for their family and will become part of a green barrier that will create a place for people and animals to live and farm successfully on the edge of the Sahara Desert.

This uplifting celebration of trees will encourage young readers to notice, value and enjoy the giants of the plant kingdom. It will also make them want to plant a tree of their own and the book includes a PLANT YOUR OWN OAK TREE activity.
