What happens when two friends take an interest in an oak tree? They begin to notice more about the world around them, such as the seasons changing and squirrels making homes. They are inspired to do independent research, from studying acorns to looking up scientific terms, and to be creative by composing pictures and poems. And they discover new things, such as their tree’s structure and characteristics—all because they stopped to look around them. As warm and dreamy as a summer day, Our Very Own Tree
will inspire readers to seek out their very own places in nature.
