The Climbing Tree
Barbara Leary, author
A story about appreciating the natural world around us, finding our place in it, and sharing it with others. Eleanor learns that climbing a tree is not as easy as a squirrel makes it look. But her curiosity is stronger than her frustration, and when she persists, she finds a fascinating new world to explore. When her family moves away, Eleanor's heart aches for her beloved tree, and she wonders if it misses her too. Returning for one last visit, Eleanor shows a small boy how to climb the tree, and her act of kindness leads to an unexpected gift.
