It's a beautiful intergenerational story told from the perspective of a little boy named Charlie, and his Grandpa Jack. Over a cup of hot chocolate Charlie's grandfather tells the story of how he planted an acorn with his own grandfather, Charlie's great-great-Grandpa George, and how he tenderly cared for it and watched it grow, from one season to the next. He shares that over the years, as the acorn grew into a mighty oak tree, how each generation enjoyed the shade of the tree, climbing it, reading under it, and gathering together as a family around it. It's a story of growing strong family ties, of sharing stories from generation to generation, and of appreciating nature, and the simple things in life, like swinging on a tire swing!
