"A beloved tree brings the town together even after it is toppled in a storm. . . . Gordon's richly colored illustrations portray the togetherness that is sometimes still found in small towns or urban neighborhoods. Community togetherness at its best in this celebration of a tree."--Kirkus Reviews "A strength of this title is the rich vocabulary that includes the names of vehicles like a cherry picker and professionals like lineman. . . . Interest will be high for this title. VERDICT An excellent selection for public or school libraries. It can be a go-to title to read after a thunderstorm."--School Library Journal
