Terrific Timothy Tree Climber
By: Jean H Johnson
About the Book
When Terrific Timothy Tree Climber begins, Timothy has climbed up a tree to hide from a classmate who followed him home just to tease him. He gathers the courage to confront his classmate, but when it ends unexpectedly, Timothy runs away, unsure of what to do. The next day at school, he learns that the classmate was injured and, believing the injury was because of his awkward confrontation, he uses his courage to tell the truth—even though he knows he might get in trouble. But, in the end, he might learn that his teaser really just needed a friend after all.
About the Author
As a child, Jean Johnson could frequently be found climbing trees in Illinois. She had a tree fort high up in an oak tree in her backyard and a tall maple tree she would escape to so she could put her imagination to work. She started writing in order to help kids have fun reading and develop active imaginations.
When Johnson’s tree-climbing days came to a close she moved to California to attend college, became a nurse, married, and had four wonderful grown children—seven including her daughter-in-law and two sons-in-law—and four granddaughters. She treasures time playing with family and reading and playing with her granddaughters.
