From Amazon.com:

I’m not sure who loved this book more – me or the kids! Set around one very special tree, “Our Tree Named Steve” traces the life of family and the changes that they go through. But through all of the changes, one thing remains constant – Steve’s presence in their lives. The family quite literally grows up around Steve, the tree that greeted them in the yard as they moved in. This story, told with earnest simplicity, teaches children about the “roots” of family and how to cope with loss. This book is filled with humor, warmth and heart. Children of all ages will love “Steve” – and parents will love reading it to them.
