The Never-Ending Greenness (Morrow
Junior Books, 1997; $15.93) by Neil
Waldman.
As the story begins, the protagonist
remembers Vilna, the town of his birth
— "mostly I remember the trees." Then
came the war; and amid this bleakness
the boy calls to the trees, "protect us."
At last, the family leaves for Israel,
where the boy dreams of an earth "cov-
ered with a thick forest carpet."
The boy's father tells his son of the
destruction, of the "many conquerors
[who] have stolen from the land [of
Israel]." His son sees thefuture, and
soon enough the land of Israel will
indeed be filled with forests; "like a mir-
acle from the Torah, a generation of
newborn trees is springing up from the
fallen seeds of those we planted years
ago•"

Sammy Spider's First Tu b'Shevat (Kar-
Ben Copies, 2000; $6.95) by Sylvia
Rouss, illustrations by Katherine Janus
Kahn.
Sammy has appeared in several books
about Jewish holidays. This one is the
best.
Sammy watches as the seasons change:
blossoms grow and fall, eggs pop open
to reveal tiny birds, the squirrel lies
snugly in his home for the winter. Then
Josh Shapiro plants a sapling, in honor
of Tu b'Shevat, and Sammy longs to cel-
ebrate, too. Finally, he weaves a web, "a

Gently mix all ingredients together.

2) Serve your child a sandwich cut in
the shape of a tree. (All this takes is a lit-
tle practice. Use a sharp knife to cut the
tree out of sandwich made of any two
pieces of bread.)

3) Look for tree- and fruit-topped tooth-
picks at the drugstore or discount shop
to decorate your holiday table.

4) Add a bit of green food coloring to
drinks or precooked white foods (like
potatoes and pasta).

5) Make a garden out of Play-Doh.
(Look for the scented variety for even
more fun).

6) Make a tree ice-cream cone. The cone
is the base (or serve in a bowl, if you're
planning on lots of toppings). The "tree"
is pistachio or mint ice cream (or you
