A young boy and his mother go for a walk in the country and are awed by the beauty of a yellow flamboyan tree. After enjoying its company and shade, the child takes one of its seeds with him and plants it. He cares for it over many years and in time the plant grows into a beautiful flowering tree. This uplifting story about the interconnectedness of people and nature makes an enjoyable choice for independent reading and an appealing read-aloud.
