An Old World family emmigrated to America, leaving behind an olive tree in Greece. Grandfather gave the tree to his granddaughter as a birthday present. Christina Moore reads Sophia well, realistically conveying the innocence of a 7 year old. Initially confused about her gift, she later understands its meaning when she and her mother visit Greece. Moore believably describes the trip from a youngster’s point of view, with just the right touch of awe and wonderment. This story, appropriate for elementary students, teaches about family heritage and the beauty of Greece. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
