Pine and the Winter Sparrow by Alexis York Lumbard

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Have you ever wondered why pine trees stay green all winter long and don t lose their leaves like other trees? According to an ancient legend attributed to the Cherokee Indians, it was a simple act of kindness towards an injured little bird that earned pine trees this very honor. Retold by award-winning author Alexis York Lumbard, this story invites readers to experience a world where trees and birds speak and interact with each other, and which shows us that no act of kindness and sharing goes unrewarded. Featuring beautiful paintings by multiple award-winning illustrator Beatriz Vidal, you will never look at pine trees in the same way again!"

This was a sweet little story about a bird who couldn't fly south because of an injured wing, who then asked different trees in the forest for a place to live over winter.
This came across as a bit of a 'good samaritan' type story to me, where lots of trees didn't want to help the poor sparrow, all except the one who did.
