A small boy longed to roll and play in the grass like his father had when he was a child. But the boy lived in a concrete city without any grass or trees. Then, one day the boy and his friend discovered a sapling hiding behind a low wall. The boy had never seen a tree before. He was so amazed, he dreamed about the tree. When they heard that a condominium was being built right on the spot where their tree was growing, the boy and his friend knew they had to dig it up and replant it in a safe place. They had to make sure the last tree survived.

Unexpectedly powerful and moving for a children's book. Makes you ache with the desire to see the beautiful green spaces of this world preserved and cherished. Reminiscent of Wall-E, and a great start to a conversation with young ones about climate change and protecting the environment.
