A lovely, unique contribution

A boy in India sees a baby tree growing by the side of a dusty path, and, because he protects it, it flourishes throughout his lifetime despite the changes to the landscape around him. Krishnaswami’s spare text tracks the tree’s growth over time, with the titular refrain “Out of the way! Out of the way!” giving voice to those who hurry past it. Kirkusreviews.com
