The Tree

By Karen Gray Ruelle

This stunningly illustrated picture book takes a fascinating journey through time as it imagines the beginnings of New York City's oldest Elm. In the heart of New York City stands a great, proud Elm tree. Stronger than any skyscraper, this tree witnessed the very beginnings of the city's settlement, it has persisted through vast fires and long wars, and it has stood tall as the city has grown even taller around it. Now 250 years old, this Elm serves to remind us of the majesty of Mother Nature and the wonders she can create with something so small as a seed. In this affectingly told and beautifully illustrated volume, Karen Gray Ruelle and Deborah Durland DeSaix imagine what might have been the beginnings of this grand tree.
