Pearl Moscowitz's Last Stand

Pearl Moskowitz recalls when her mother urged the mayor to plant trees in their neighborhood. As Pearl grew, so did the trees and new families settled by her home. Soon, though, the city began cutting down the trees. Now the very last tree is facing the bulldozer and the time has come for Pearl Moskowitz's last stand.

Roxaboxen

Roxaboxen is a town you'll never forget. It looked like any hill-- nothing but sand, rocks, some old wooden boxes and thorny plants-- but to the children who played there it was a special place. They made houses of jewels and white stones, and everyone could have a car. All you needed was imagination!
