Britta visits her two favorite trees, Apple and Magnolia, every day. Though she can't explain it, she's sure they are best friends! Then one day, Magnolia's branches start to droop. Is there anything Britta--or Apple--can do to help? After all, unusual friendships can be the most powerful of all.
With a lyrical story and vibrant art, Apple and Magnolia unveils the extraordinary connections between trees and the wondrous bonds between all living things. The book includes an author's note offering facts about how trees communicate with one another. A downloadable discussion guide with more information is available at flyawaybooks.com/resources.
PRAISE FOR APPLE AND MAGNOLIA
"Beautifully told and illustrated, this book is a gem on
many levels. The relationship with wise Nana illustrates the importance of intergenerational stories; Britta's determination shows how strong girls can
be, and it shows that we all have an impact on the natural world." --School Library Journal
