Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn.
--Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719)

Have you ever cried for a plant? You just might if you read this book (and your heart isn't made of stone)! A girl and her family live next to a field where a huge old oak tree grows. It is a beautiful tree that is special to her because of all the things her family does under and around it. One day it becomes sick and she, her family, and even neighbors try desperately to save it.

This is a simple, easy-to-read book with a simple yet powerful message: be careful with nature. Whether you are a "tree-hugger," a nature-lover, or just a human being, read this book. I think you will enjoy it.
