The gift of imagination

bookcover
Author: Eric Houghton

When Kate and Ben move into their new home they are not thrilled with the crooked apple tree in their backyard. Over the course of four seasons, they discover that they can incorporate the tree into their play and that the tree really has a lot to offer. Wisely, Dad has been taking photographs of the tree and the kids through all the seasons. They celebrate the tree with a scrapbook and realize that their first assessment of the tree was incorrect and hasty!
