Sylvia Rose and the Cherry Treeby Sandy Shapiro Hurt
When bold, adventurous Sylvia Rose comes dancing through the forest, the woodland creatures just have to dance too. Enchanted, they beg her to come back every day. But the lovely, heartbroken cherry tree is too deeply rooted to dance, much less to fulfill her dream of seeing the wide world beyond the forest. Determined to help, Sylvia Rose enlists the animals to uproot the glorious tree, and the girl and the tree set off globetrotting together, seeing the wonders of the world from the Eiffel Tower to the Sydney Opera House. Back home in the forest, however, the animals suffer without the food and shelter of their life-sustaining tree. Will the tree give up her newfound freedom and return to her place in the forest ecosystem? Sylvia Rose and the Cherry Treespins a story of adventure and the importance of home.Learn more about this title.
