The Family Tree

Written and Illustrated by David McPhail

The Family Tree is a story told in generations about a tree that has stood for over 200 years. When progress threatens, a young boy’s courage, along with an array of unusual friends, keep the tree standing in it’s honored place on the farm. This is a sweet, lovely book by David McPhail, who also compliments his text with his beautiful illustrations. This book has heart, and teaches what is truly important in the world and how the past and present progress can work together for the benefit of all. Don’t miss the illustrations on the very last page.
