Grandpa's Tree is a richly-descriptive, rhythmic, read-aloud book for children--the result of a walk through the park with my first grandchild, age three. Picking up an acorn, he stared at it for a moment and came running back.
"Grandma! Grandpa! Look what I found...a tree-egg!" Struck by the truth of this innocent declaration, I sat down to write a whimsical tale of a boy who spends time in his grandpa's oak tree, where he learns some unexpected lessons about life in the tree...thanks to a sly, furry squirrel.
