Peter and the Tree Children
Peter Wohlleben, illustrated By Cale Atkinson
Piet the squirrel feels all alone in his forest home. Luckily, Peter the Forester has the perfect plan to cheer him up: a search for tree children. You can't be lonely in a forest full of friends!
As they wander, Peter shares amazing facts about trees, how they communicate and care for each other, and the struggles they endure. Soon, the little squirrel is feeling much better — especially when he realizes he's helped the tree children grow.
