This literature guide is to be used with the picture book, THE VERY OLDEST PEAR TREE, written by Nancy I. Sanders with art by Yasmin Imamura. (Publication date on August 20, 2020 by Albert Whitman and Company).
THIS TREE HAS HISTORY!
In the 1630s in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a Puritan settler planted a pear tree…the first pear tree in America. More than a century later, the tree still bore fruit, impressing a famous poet and one of the first US presidents. The pear tree survived hurricanes, fire, and vandalism, and today, nearly 400 years after it was first planted, it’s alive and strong, and clones of it grow all around the United States. Read about its story in the engaging picture book, THE VERY OLDEST PEAR TREE.
