The Tree and Me

Bea Garcia, #4

Written and Illustrated by Deborah Zemke

Outside of Emily Dickinson Elementary School stands a beautiful, tall, white oak tree named Emily. After a troublemaker climbs the beloved Emily, the solution is to cut her down. Bea and her classmates know that is not the right solution and must come together to problem solve and save Emily. As the children work to save Emily they explore, research facts, and use their creative talents to change the minds of those who want to cut her down.

The fun illustrations retell the story and help it come to life.
