Picture book biography of Katherine Olivia Sessions who loved working with plants. When she moved from the heavily wooded northern California to the southern Californian San Diego desert, Sessions was determined to discover what kinds of trees would survive there – and she did.
Actually the author repeats those last few words, “and she did,” over and over again in this book with variations.
“Not everyone knew how to hunt for trees. But Kate did.”
This repetition gives a rhythm to the writing and a positive spin to Kate’s lifelong project.
