Elissa, protagonist of Elissa Uncovers the Origins of the Alphabet, returns in this charming and beautifully illustrated book. She is, once again, traveling back in time, but this time, she is only going as far as her Grandfather's youth to uncover the origins of his love for olive trees.

Grandfather explains that olive trees look beautiful, the logs can make fragrant long-lasting firewood for warmth and cooking, that olives and olive oil taste delicious (which Elissa already knows!) and that olive oil can even be made into soap or lotion. Not only that, but the small fruits have healing properties, keeping hearts healthy and bones strong. More than that: looking after olive trees makes Grandfather feel closer to his own grandfather, and his great-grandfather and his great-great-grandfather... It is no wonder that an olive branch has become a symbol for world peace, says Grandfather, because everyone in the world loves olives!

Join Elissa and Grandfather in this informative and amusing book that is ideal for the home's bookshelves, the classroom, or for inclusion in the children's section of a lending library. Parents and children alike, will love the simple storyline, the warm familial bonds depicted in the tale and the clear and beautiful illustrations. It is sure to be a firm favorite, whether as a bedtime story or some quiet reading time after all the chores have been done!
