Pine and the Winter Sparrow retold by Alexis York Lumbard
Pine and the Winter Sparrow is a retelling of a traditional Native American tale. In the book a sparrow with a broken wing seeks shelter during the winter. All of the trees refuse him, except for Pine. As a reward the pine tree becomes the only tree to not lose her leaves in the winter. This is a nice book that teaches kindness, as well as a little bit about the rhythms of the seasons.
