I am trying to find a book from my childhood that showed a car traveling through a large tree. I was a child of the 80’s, so the book would have been published before then. I remembered reading it at my grand mothers house so it may have been a very old book! I believe it was from the Golden Book series and I am guessing the book was about road trips, or traveling, or large trees or California since that is the only place I know of that has drive through trees. That book recently inspired my bucket list trip to Northern California to actually drive through a tree and now I want to find the book that inspired the trip! I have been searching, but have not had any luck finding the book. Thanks in advance for your help!

361J: Tree telephone pole book
I have a children’s book I’d like to find. This is a story about a tree that gets cut down and shipped off and then reappropriated as a telephone pole. As it turns out, the tree still had some roots in it, so it ends up growing and flourishing again as a telephone pole. I had it read to me in the early 90s, but the actual book may be older than that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
356T: Book of Children’s Stories from 50’s or 60’s
I am looking for an old children’s book of stories. I guess it would be from between the 1950s or 60s. It contained the story of the woman who became a woodpecker who baked pies as well as a story of a man who had to cut a hole in his roof to fit the top of his tall Christmas tree through.
354C: Tree With Leaves Representing People’s Hearts
Looking for a children’s book about understanding love/ emotions? – at the end the child (a boy?) is looking up into a tree and some of the leaves are green gems / jewels, representing people’s hearts (I think?).

352J: Pizza grows on trees?
I have a memory of a children’s book from the 80s — it was interactive with flaps and things you could pull. I have two clear memories of it. One page had a tree with lots of foods you could pull out — like a slice of pizza and an orange. Another page had little doors you could open for each letter of the alphabet–each one had a name starting with the letter from the alphabet (I remember Quentin and Xavier) and when you opened the door it would either say “Quentin is in” or “Quentin is out”). I believe each character was a mouse and if they were in, you would see them in their little window. If they were out, it would be empty. I think, actually, that the whole book might have been themed around these mice and that it might have been called something like “Mr. ____ Mice.” But even though I’ve tried to search for it many times, that clearly hasn’t been enough info to turn up the book I want! It seems to me like it might have been a Dr. Seuss knock-off, one of those books that sort of looks and sounds like Dr. Seuss but isn’t. Don’t know if that’s enough to locate a book! But grateful for any help you can give me.

Looking for a book. It's a fiction novel, set in Italy, about a priest, an old tree (olive tree, I think) and a couple.
Published in late 80’s or 90’s. I thought the author’s last name was Smith, but can’t find it. Book purchased at a small indie bookstore.
348B: Box hidden in hollow tree
This is a middle grade children’s mystery about a brother and a sister (I think) who find an old metal box in a hole in a tree. The box may have something to do with the Revolutionary War.
347P: Skateboarding Girls Try to Save Apartment Building
Preteen (maybe 13 y/o) girl lives in New York (most likely Greenwich village) with her single mother. They are about to lose their apartment or an apartment building is about to be torn down. She and her best friend, who is a POC, try and find a special artifact in the building before it is torn down or save the building from being torn down at all. I remember that a tree is growing in the foundation of the building. This girl and her mother sometimes ate egg sandwiches whenever they were upset. The girl and her best friend liked to skateboard.
342F: Little girl left toy under the willow tree overnight

I have been trying to figure out the name of a book I used to rent from a library in RI with my grandmother when I was young. It was about a little girl (I think her name was Charlotte). She had a toy (I think a bunny, but could’ve been some other stuffed toy) and she left it under a willow tree. I think she left it and there was a storm.
