Art & Oakie Ask is a nearly wordless picture book series that makes speaking up for the environment universal and fun for everyone. The series follows an imaginative first-grader and her best friend Oakie the good-natured oak tree. Together Art and Oakie go on adventures to help their friends in nature. 


Thanks to the wordless format, reading the books aloud is as creative as it is fun! You and your littles get to interpret the book's lush comics imagery and make up the story for yourselves.

In the first book, Oakie the oak tree goes on an adventure to find someone who will speak up for the forest. But the problem is that Oakie speaks Tree, a fun visual language that no one else understands.

That all changes when Oakie meets Art, an imaginative elementary school student with a crayon in hand and a plan in mind to save the day.

Art & Oakie Ask: Do You Speak Bear?
