Overview

Notes From Your Bookseller

When storytelling blends thoughtful, impactful text and delicate, yet powerful illustrations, magic occurs. Anne Wynter's and Daniel Miyares' Nell Plants a Tree is that magic. Their story beautifully tip toes across generations to celebrate family, nature and wonder. Nell Plants a Tree, like a carefully watered pecan tree, is a gift that can be enjoyed for years to come.

This gorgeous picture book shows how one little girl’s careful tending of a pecan tree creates the living center of a loving, intergenerational Black family. For Earth Day and every day! Perfect for fans of Matt de la Peña and Oge Mora.

Before her grandchildren climbed the towering tree,

explored its secret nests,

                      raced to its sturdy trunk,

                                  read in its cool shade,

                      or made pies with its pecans…

Nell buried a seed.

And just as Nell’s tree grows and thrives with her love and care, so do generations of her close-knit family.

Inspired by the pecan trees of the creators' own childhoods, Anne Wynter’s lyrical picture book, brought to life with breathtaking illustrations by Daniel Miyares, brims with wonder and love.
