A little tree, guided by her family circle and forest friends, can’t wait to grow tall and strong

Little Sap can’t wait to grow tall and strong just like her mother and touch the sky. But growing takes time. Luckily for Little Sap, she has her family circle close by and a forest of friends, above and below ground, to help guide her up.

Praise

“The titular tree’s biography is the platform for teaching young children little gems of current science about tree behavior and the recently coined wood wide web. . . A sweet introduction for blossoming naturalists.”
Kirkus
Simultaneously informative and sweet, this book will appeal to young arborists.
Publishers Weekly
