Staff Reviews


This picture book is full of whimsical questions from a child’s perspective about the emotional lives of trees. The minimalist illustration is done in a mixture of simple line drawing and collage that reminds me of Eric Carle! With each turn of the page, we get to see the child's wonder as they admire their world, surrounded by different kinds of trees and small forest creatures. This book is perfect for your inquisitive and thoughtful child.
