A picture book rendering from Newbery Honor author Preus about a fascinating little-known subject -- the world’s oldest, biggest arboreal specimens. The illustrations have a folk art quality with people around the world celebrating the value of these natural monuments. Students in my school library in Kansas were excited to learn that one of trees was within driving distance of their neighborhood! The book ends with suggestions to students for growing and nurturing their own “celebritrees”.
