The gentle tale of a baby boy and the tree planted in honor of his birth.

When Leo is born, his father plants a tree--a scratchy, branchy linden tree. Soon Leo is growing hair and the tree is sprouting buds, the first of many delightful changes that boy and tree experience during their early years together. As the seasons change, Leo and his tree continue to grow strong and true.

Then, when a baby sister joins the family, her tender new sapling is planted next to Leo's sturdy tree.

Debora Pearson has created a gentle and heartwarming tale. Softly illustrated by Nora Hilb, this is a story for growing young children and their parents to cherish and share for years to come.
