StoryWalk in Zander Park

March/April StoryWalk 

Nell Plants a Tree, by Anne Wynter & Daniel Miyares

This month we are looking towards Earth Day, and our big free tree giveaway by Neighborhood Forest, at the library. As you plant your trees, here's a story to help your children get excited about the process!

Book cover for Nell Plants a Tree, girl reading a book sitting under a pecan tree.


Before her grandchildren climbed the towering tree,

explored its secret nests,

                      raced to its sturdy trunk,

                                  read in its cool shade,

                      or made pies with its pecans...

Nell buried a seed.

And just as Nell’s tree grows and thrives with her love and care, so do generations of her close-knit family.

Inspired by the pecan trees of the creators' own childhoods, Anne Wynter’s lyrical picture book, brought to life with breathtaking illustrations by Daniel Miyares, brims with wonder and love.(

Please enjoy this selection and be sure and come to the library to let us know what you think!
