The Bee Tree by Patricia Polacco.
Philomel Books/Putnam & Grosset Group: NY, 1993.

Grampa and Mary Ellen start an adventure to find a honey tree. A parade forms as members of the town join their quest. They have a honey-eating party afterwards, and Grampa compares the chase for the honey to the search for knowledge or enjoyment of books. I enjoy the old-time story, but I especially like that it is an adventure we could have ourselves today.
