My Grandpa, My Tree, and Me

By Roxanne Troup

2024 AFBFA Book of the Year!

Of all the trees in Grandpa’s orchard, one tree is his favorite--a pecan tree, planted for his granddaughter on the day she was born. As the seasons change, the leaves unfurl and fall again while Grandpa tenderly cares for each tree in his orchard. Sometimes they need pruning, sometimes they need feeding. They all need harvesting, and the granddaughter loves watching the tractor hug the trees’ trunks and shake until leaves and twigs and pecans rain down. But not the child’s tree--her tree is special. It is not a part of the orchard. It’s for just the two of them and all the ways their relationship grows as they care for this special tree: tending its roots, harvesting its pecan treasures, and creating something delicious together.
