About the Book

Big Tree is the neighborhood's biggest landmark. It presides over street games, barbeques, and water fights. But crack! Oh no! Big Tree has been split by lightning! In this warm and positive book, people from all parts of the community—neighbors, city workers, and children—come together to clean up and remember Big Tree, and to plant Little Tree in its stead.

This wonderful story of neighborly cooperation and community engagement will introduce kids to the joys of being involved in the world immediately around them.
