A family builds a home on a wooded lot, and decides to save an unusual tree named Steve. The family grows to love this tree, using it for a variety of activities. Steve the Tree, really becomes part of the family. Written as a letter from the dad to the kids, we learn of the trees demise and what that means to the family.

Anyone who is halfway sentimental will find themselves BAWLING at the end of the book. Read it a few times alone to inoculate yourself from the emotion before you try reading it to your kids.
