They are inspired to do independent research, from studying acorns to looking up scientific terms, and to be creative by composing pictures and poems.

As warm and dreamy as a summer day, Our Very Own Tree will inspire readers to seek out their very own places in nature. Our Very Own Tree is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in grades K–3 while encouraging them to become avid readers.
