About the book
The adventure begins when an old farmhouse gets salvaged and recycled into Tiny, a snug little house with a big heart -- and WHEELS! With the help of Big Truck, Tiny sets off across America to discover if he is still a real home. Tiny makes friends on the road, like Shiny the Airstream, Waverly the houseboat, and Buster the skoolie. He even goes to a jamboree! After thousands of miles, Tiny discovers that home isn’t a place...it’s a feeling in your heart.

About the Author & Illustrator
Author Susan Bernardo and illustrator Courtenay Fletcher are a dynamic creative team, committed to producing beautiful books to inspire and heal children. In 2012, they published their first book together – a picture book about love titled Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs. This led to a wonderful collaboration with actor LeVar Burton (Reading Rainbow, Star Trek, Roots) on The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm, a picture book to help families coping with trauma (Rhino has been read aloud by Michelle Obama and sent to the International Space Station for Storytime from Space!).

This book is SO amazing! A beautifully written scientific and personal memoir that is informative, touching, heart-breaking, and inspiring. Jahren’s descriptions of her life and scientific research into the intricacies of the plant world are as poetic and poignant as it gets. The story weaves through her early upbringing in Minnesota, her education, starting her lab with her lovable and eccentric lab partner Bill. It then follows her finding love, motherhood, and her ground-breaking geobiology research. Reading this is like taking a walk through the forest with a friend. Every word is filled with authenticity and a fervent passion for science and this book makes me proud to be studying to become a scientist. It’s a must read for those interested in the natural world or any human who has ever had feelings. - Linnea
