My Grandma Sadie, A Splendid Squirrel Lady
A Squirrel’s Altruistic Tree Planting Journey to Help Solve Climate Change
by Deborah Lorraine

When Sadie Squirrel wakes up from a long slumber, she finds her beloved forests and fields replaced by urban sprawl, leaving only her own tree standing. She has no idea how this happened, but she knows that it is bad. This causes a menagerie of homeless animals to request asylum in her tree. She cheerfully agrees. Luckily, along with her furry, feathery, and scaly new friends comes a great idea—one that might just save the forests, and even the earth itself. She and her friends might be small and not as powerful as those who cut the forests down, but maybe—just maybe—they can still make a difference. After all, every tree and every forest begins with a tiny seed. Sadie just has to figure out a way to ensure that the seed gets planted. My Grandma Sadie, a Splendid Squirrel Lady, is a fun and colorful rhyming story that appeals to primary school children. It was written to capture their hearts and minds while amusing and entertaining them—giving them a sense of belief that their actions can make a difference in a world that, at times, can feel overwhelmingly large and complex.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. Chinese Proverb

In the lovely city of London, Ontario, Deborah finds tranquility in her backyard sanctuary, nestled under the protective canopy of two magnificent maple trees. Even on the hottest days of summer, under the nurturing presence of her large, leafy companions, this breezy, backyard office creates delightful working conditions where writing, inspiration and ideas blossom. Deborah is a member of The Society of Children's Books, Writers, and Illustrators (SCBWI), a charming community that shares her enjoyment for spinning magical narratives. She also follows UNICEF, the World School Championship for Reforestation and Canada Writes (CBC). Deborah can be reached on her website: Once Upon A Lifetime -
