The Seeking Tree by Jodi Dee (Recommended Ages 5-6)
A young sapling sprouts! It is excited about its new world. It yearns to connect with all things that pass by. Unfortunately, human beings are too busy. So, it patiently waits and watches for a thousand years. Follow its magical journey as humanity evolves and trees begin to slowly disappear.
Until… a girl far in the future finds the seeking tree. With your help, she can change the course of history!
We are part of an intricate and connected ecosystem. The abundant resources of our planet are not disposable; there exists a delicate balance of give and take.
Some of the oldest living things on our remarkable planet are trees.
The record holder is the ancient Great Basin Bristlecone Pine (Pinus longaeva). It is estimated to be more than 5,060 years old. It is the oldest known non-clonal tree in the world, and one of the oldest living organisms on planet Earth.
Their most unique adaptation is that these trees can survive even the severest droughts by going into a dormant state. They can hibernate for several years and only reawaken when the rain or snow begins to fall again.
However, Bristlecone pines are not alone in their longevity; a number of other tree species have also been around for millennia.
It would be hard to imagine a world without the majestic trees that stand beside us…
In a rapidly changing climate with concerns over global warming, this story reminds us to pause and revere in the beauty of our natural world.
Wildoak by C.C. Harrington (Recommended Ages 9+)
Maggie Stephens’s stutter makes school especially hard. She will do almost anything to avoid speaking in class or calling attention to herself. So when her unsympathetic father threatens to send her away for so-called “treatment,” she reluctantly agrees to her mother’s intervention plan: a few weeks in the fresh air of Wildoak Forest, visiting a grandfather she hardly knows. It is there, in an extraordinary twist of fate, that she encounters an abandoned snow leopard cub, an exotic gift to a wealthy Londoner that proved too wild to domesticate. But once the cub’s presence is discovered by others, danger follows, and Maggie soon realizes that time is running out, not only for the leopard, but for herself and the forest as well.
Told in alternating voices, Wildoak shimmers with beauty, compassion, and unforgettable storytelling as it explores the delicate interconnectedness of the human, animal, and natural worlds.
