Dear Kids, A long time ago, when you were little, Mom and I took you to where we wanted to build a house. . . . I remember there was one tree, however, that the three of you couldn’t stop staring at. . . .

After the family spares him from the builders, Steve the tree quickly works his way into their lives. He holds their underwear when the dryer breaks down, he’s there when Adam and Lindsay get their first crushes, and he’s the centerpiece at their outdoor family parties. With a surprising lack of anthropomorphizing, this is a uniquely poignant celebration of fatherhood, families, love, and change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love this book I'm sitting here thinking how to best describe why i love this book, and it sounds perhaps bad to say because it made me cry. Well up. Every time. It's a lovely heartwarming story of a family, growing into, through and past stages in each of their lives while showing the tree's growth and change amidst it all. It touches your heart this book, and that is why i love it.
