Another powerful story in the Logan Family Saga and companion to Mildred D. Taylor's Newbery Award-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

With the depression bearing down on her family, there isn’t much that Cassie Logan can count on anymore. 

But there is one thing that hasn’t changed—the whispering trees outside her window. Cassie’s trees, which have stood for centuries, are a great source of comfort to her. But they are also worth a lot of money. With Cassie’s daddy gone to lay tracks for the railroad, it seems like no one can stop Mr. Andersen from forcing Big Ma to sell their valuable trees. How can Cassie sit by and watch them disappear? The beloved heroine of Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry enchants us again in this story of strength and pride.

"A triumphant book…A true story truly told."—The New York Times Book Review

This was Taylor's first book (near as I can tell), and it's a book about the Logan family, telling a story that we hear secondhand in "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry". This is the story of the Logan family trees, and how white men came to cut them down, regardless of what the owners of that land thought. It's short, and unlike the novels in this series, holds tightly to one thread in the Logans' long history.

This is a cute and meaningful book. The version I had was a lot of previews of other books. I love the feelings that Cassie had for the trees.

this book was very influencial to a child's understanding of when and when not to stay out of things. and i believe children should be taught at an early age what it was like for children in the 1930's and what struggles and what troubles they were not allowed to get away with, compared to where children are at today and how much trouble we get away with and the freedom we have.

Song of the Trees is a great book. I love it, my teacher had us to read and a write a essay on it. Although I didn't like the essay part I did love reading the book! When Mr.Anderson tries to mess with Big Ma he doesn't get the answer he likes. So Mama sends Stacey to get Papa from the railroad and when Papa get's back it's nothing but downhill for Mr.Anderson.

I loved the book because Cassie can talk to the trees and they talk back and she's just like me. I can hear them talk to me and Cassie's family is just like mine. The book has black and white pictures and they're cool. When you read the story it's like you're there and when they're sad I can be sad too. It is nice to read a book that you can be in that is so realistic.

Mildred D.Taylor is a great author and so are her books. I read this book and I love it. I read it as a homework assignment. I thought it was boring until I saw the authors name.
