A picture book that shows how one little girl’s careful tending of a pecan tree creates the living center of a loving, intergenerational Black family.
Before her grandchildren climbed the towering tree,
explored its secret nests,
raced to its sturdy trunk,
read in its cool shade,
or made pies with its pecans…
Nell buried a seed.
And just as Nell’s tree grows and thrives with her love and care, so do generations of her close-knit family.
Inspired by the pecan trees of the creators’ own childhoods, this lyrical picture book by Anne Wynter, LA 06, brought to life with breathtaking illustrations by Daniel Miyares, brims with wonder and love.
