Each year on his birthday, a young Mexican-American boy looks forward to seeing how his grandfather decorated the tree planted the day the boy was adopted. Authored by Pat Mora, this book embraces new traditions and values, as well as exhibits familiar family relations that are warm and heartfelt.
In addition to giving us wood, paper, food, and other products, trees are invaluable assets to our communities. As such, people all over the world celebrate trees. This year, National Arbor Day is April 27th. Consider decorating a tree to celebrate, just like Pablo and his grandfather!
