Jessie’s ball is stuck in Grandma’s prized pear tree. Worried that Grandma will be mad, Jessie tries to get the ball down by asking for help from busy relatives before Grandma sees the problem. From a shoe to a chicken, each suggestion only seems to make the problem worse. With no other choice, Jessie finally admits to Grandma what has happened. In the end, Jessie learns that working together is best to solve a problem and that family is there to support you when you need them. The art for Grandma’s Pear Tree was first drawn in pencil, and then colored using acrylics.

This title is available in English–only or embedded (English with Spanish sprinkled throughout) editions.
