The City Tree
Author: Shira Boss
Illustrator: Lorena Alvarez
In this enchanting and informative picture book with environmental themes, a newly planted street tree transforms the neighborhood as residents nurture it through the seasons. Vibrantly illustrated and including extensive back matter, this is a lovely ode to how trees make cities—and communities—better. Perfect for fans of The Night Gardener and The Curious Garden.
Dani lives on a city block carpeted with concrete—until a street tree moves in.
The tree brings the wonders of nature to Dani’s doorstep and is good company through the days and seasons. But it will need help to thrive . . .
This love letter to the many gifts of trees reminds us to take care of our neighbors—even those with roots, branches, and leaves.
