About the Book
Meet the Nevergreen Tree – a little tree with a big imagination. When a family of evergreen trees gets caught up in their busy schedule and chores, the Nevergreen Tree teaches them a lesson about the importance of taking time to dream and play. What kind of tree would you pretend to be?
The Nevergreen Tree was illustrated by WilmU Alumni and Faculty member, Nicole Karam!
