A walk in the woods / Nikki Grimes ; [illustrated by] Jerry Pinkney, Brian Pinkney.

Grimes, Nikki, (author.). Pinkney, Jerry, (illustrator.). Pinkney, J. Brian, (illustrator.).


Confused and distraught after the death of his father, a boy opens an envelope his dad left behind and is surprised to find a map of the woods beyond their house, with one spot marked in bright red. The woods had been something they shared together. Why would his father want him to go alone? The treasure trove he finds reveals something more for them to share, and some peace amid the grief. His dad knew what he really needed was a walk in the woods. -- Provided by publisher.
