This story is about a tree called Oscar. From infancy to maturity, Oscar’s progression shows the importance of nurturing parents and friends and learning to adapt to life's difficulties. “A Tree Called Oscar” (published by LifeRich Publishing) teaches young readers to compromise for the sake of each other's happiness.

Author G.K. Jones says she was inspired to write by her grandchildren. “I want parents to remember to hold their children near, but not so near that they can’t spread their wings,” she says.

Readers can expect a narrative filled with love and compassion paired with colorful illustrations depicting the peaceful quality of nature and its inhabitants.

An excerpt from “A Tree Called Oscar”:
They asked Willie, the squirrel, if he would plant their special seed on the mound that rose from the meadow so that all the forest could watch it grow.

Willie planted the seed as his friends watched.
