HowAndWhy, January 31, 2014 (view all comments by HowAndWhy)
Not the best message for our children. Taking without appreciation. Selfishness. Inconsiderate. If the tree truly loved the boy, it would have told him to find a job and earn the money to raise a family and buy a house.

This book is a classic. It is a story of love. The kind that gives and doesn't look for anything in return. It keeps giving even when there is nothing left to give.

My five year old loves this book. He knows it and it never gets old.

This book is a beautiful parable detailing unconditional love. The tree sacrifices repeatedly, until it has nothing left to sacrifice, for the boy. Despite the boy failing to show appreciation, the tree continues to love him and help him in any way possible.

"Synopsis" by ,
A timeless story to share among the generations from the #1 New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of the Otis series and The Little Engine That Could 

In the middle of a little forest, there lives a Little Tree who loves his life and the splendid leaves that keep him cool in the heat of long summer days. Life is perfect just the way it is.

Autumn arrives, and with it the cool winds that ruffle Little Tree's leaves. One by one the other trees drop their leaves, facing the cold of winter head on. But not Little Tree—he hugs his leaves as tightly as he can. Year after year Little Tree remains unchanged, despite words of encouragement from a squirrel, a fawn, and a fox, his leaves having long since turned brown and withered. As Little Tree sits in the shadow of the other trees, now grown sturdy and tall as though to touch the sun, he remembers when they were all the same size. And he knows he has an important decision to make.

From #1 New York Times bestselling Loren Long comes a gorgeously-illustrated story that challenges each of us to have the courage to let go and to reach for the sun.

 

"Synopsis" by , From debut picture book author L.J.R. Kelly, and acclaimed illustrator Yoko Tanaka, comes a poignant ode to well-loved toys in the vein of picture book favorites such as The Velveteen Rabbit, The Giving Tree, and Knuffle Bunny.

Blanket and Bear have always gone everywhere with their boy—but one day they are accidentally left behind. On a daring adventure across oceans and faraway lands, they travel to find their way back to the boy, meeting new friends along the way.
