"The tale of a boy and tree who grow up together."
When Leo is born, his father plants a tree -- a scratchy, branchy linden tree. Soon Leo is growing hair and the tree is sprouting buds, the first of many delightful changes that boy and tree experience during their early years together. As the seasons change, Leo and his tree continue to grow strong and true.
Then one day Leo and his parents welcome baby Laleh to the family. And what better way to celebrate this special event than with the planting of a tender new sapling -- right next to Leo's now tall and sturdy tree.
Pearson has created a gentle and heartwarming tale of a boy, his tree and the growth they share. Softly illustrated by Nora Hilb, this is a story for growing young children and their parents to share and cherish for years to come.
