About The Book

A multi-generational story that follows young Pablo on his birthday as he anticipates seeing how his abuelito (grandfather) has decorated a tree planted on the day Pablo was adopted.

Each year on his birthday, a young Mexican American boy looks forward to seeing how his grandfather has decorated the tree he planted on the day the boy was adopted. A charming story about a sweet tradition a boy and his grandfather share, “Lang's clever cut-paper collages fill each page like a photo album with picture after picture of a family history that sparkles with love and a sense of belonging” (Booklist).
