Overview

The Survivor Tree: Inspired by a True Story by Cheryl Somers Aubin, Sheila Harrington

Through evocative prose and watercolor illustrations, The Survivor
Tree: Inspired by a True Story
takes the reader on a journey of hope and healing that parallels our nation's own journey following the events of September 11, 2001.

A month after the collapse of the Twin Towers, workers on the site discovered a few green leaves showing through the gray concrete and ash.
Clearing the debris, they found a badly injured Callery Pear Tree. She was rescued, taken to a nursery outside the city, and put in the care of Richie, a City Parks Worker. No one was sure if she would live. But the following spring, a dove built a nest in her branches and new green buds appeared.

Over the years, the tree, although still bearing scars, grew tall and strong. She is planted in a place of honor on the 9/11 Memorial Plaza and now known as "The 9/11 Survivor Tree." This story imaginatively describes the experience, memories, and feelings of the tree throughout her healing and her eventual return home.
