After her grandfather's death, eight-year-old Sophia fulfills his last request and journeys to Greece with her mother to see the land where her roots are.
From the Publisher:
The day she turns seven, Sophia's grandfather gives her an olive tree. At first, Sophia thinks it's an odd gift, but when Grandfather dies, she and her mother travel to Greece to see the tree. There, Sophia walks the old streets; hears the language, strange and beautiful; sees the house where her family lived for generations; and finally, finds her tree and discovers that what her Grandfather has given her is far greater than anything she'd ever imagined.

The day I was seven, my grandfather gave me and olive tree...At first, Sophia thinks the tree is an odd gift, but when Grandfather dies and her mother travel to Greece to see the tree, she discovers that what he discovers that what he has given her is far greater than she'd ever imagined.

A testimony to the wondrous ties of family and heritage, this glorious picture book brings together the beautiful writing of acclaimed author Eve Bunting and the exuberant paintings of artist Karen Barbour.

After her grandfather's death, eight-year-old Sophia fulfills his last request and journeys to Greece with her mother to see the land where her roots are.
