Thank you, each and everyone, who left a comment for Cathy about her post and her debut picture book, When a Tree Grows. Usually, I pop in to respond to each comment, but Cathy did such a terrific job of personally writing to each one that I decided to simply write a thank you here. THANK YOU! I was impressed by how each of you wrote about something that spoke to you in the post or from the book. They were the best sort of comments ever. So Thank You again, and thank you, Cathy, for your "gold nugget" post and for your generosity in giving a book for the comment contest.
The LUCKY WINNER of When a Tree Grows:

WHEN A TREE GROWS is a rollicking read-aloud that follows a zany chain of events triggered by a broken tree, a cranky Bear, a nut-loving Squirrel and his loyal friend Moose.
Debut author Cathy Ballou Mealey lives with her family north of Boston, where she delights in watching silly squirrel antics and is waiting patiently for a moose to appear. Her favorite nut is the hazelnut and her favorite cupcake is cardamom crème.

Be sure to watch for Cathy's forthcoming picture book, PICKLE PACKERS, illustrated by Kelly Collier and published by Kids Can Press in 2021. PICKLE PACKERS is the story of a peppy Squirrel who wants to buy a bicycle so he and his best friend Sloth can go FAST! Sounds like more rollicking good fun coming our way, doesn't it?
