The Reading Tree Story

Meet Ariana and learn about the magic of the Reading Tree and why it needs Tulsa County children to grow its leaves before the park’s opening in late spring/summer 2018.

Take  The Reading Tree Challenge today! Help Tulsa County children read 2 million books before late spring/summer 2018. Based on the real Reading Tree, the largest and oldest cottonwood tree at Gathering Place, the challenge ignites a child’s imagination to find the power and wonder in reading. With teachers, educators, and families working together, we can inspire the next generation to marvel at the worlds that await them from page to page.
