Margaret Spencer loves the enthusiasm children have for learning about trees and nature. Her first children's book, My City Tree Cares for Me, was published in 2011 and was written to educate 1st to 3rd graders about the benefits of urban trees.
About the book: When Callie and her parents move from the country to a new home in the city, she is not sure she will be happy. When they get to the city, though, it doesn't look anything like she thought it would. She is surprised to see lots of beautiful trees. Then she discovers that the big tree in her front yard is very special! Baxter the bur oak teaches Callie about the good things he does for her home, and his acorn friend Mac takes her on a fun adventure around the city!
