Publisher Comments:

Cartwheel moves to a new country with her auntie, and everything is strange: the animals, the plantsandmdash;even the wind. An old blanket gives Cartwheel comfort when sheandrsquo;s sadandmdash;and a new blanket just might change her world.and#160;
and#160;
This multiculturaland#160;story of friendship is about leaving home, moving to a foreign and strange place, and finding a new friend. Itand#39;s a story for all who have experienced change. Irena Kobaldandrsquo;s poetic text, paired with Kate Greenaway medalist Freya Blackwoodand#39;s powerful paintings, renders an emotional and heart-warming story about two children from diverse backgrounds coming together to become new friends.

Review:

"As Staake shows families around the world planting trees and enjoying their gifts, Muldrow sets an incantatory mood: 'We planted a tree./ We planted a tree and it grew up.' Each spread bubbles with retro-styled, wide-eyed exuberance; it's a kick to see how Staake wields geometry as he gleefully globe-trots, wrapping his curvilinear-inclined aesthetic around locales as far flung as the African savanna, downtown Paris, Brooklyn, and snowy New England. Its unconditional joy and exuberance stand out. Ages 5 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Moving is hard--but friends make it easier.

In this stunning multicultural picture book illustrated by Kate Greenaway Medalist Freya Blackwood, a young girl has moved to a new country with her auntie,and#160;and misses all sheand#39;s ever known. Everything in her new country feels so strange: the animals, the plants--even the wind. To comfort herself, she creates a safe place under her old blanket, which is made out of memories, thoughts, and reminders of home. After meeting a new friend in the park, the girl begins to weave a new blanket--one made of friendship, new words, and a renewed sense of belonging. Itand#39;s very different from the old blanket, but it eventually becomes just as warm and familiar--and one to share with her new friend.

and#160; and#160; and#160;Fans of Tricia Tusa, Helen Oxenbury, Marla Frazee, and Matt Phelan will delight in reading this warm story alongside Blackwoodand#39;s artwork.

Synopsis:

We planted a tree and it grew up,

While it reached for the sky and the sun. . . .

In this simple poem illustrated by award winner Bob Staake, two young families in two very different parts of the world plant a tree. As the trees flourish, so do the families . . . while trees all over the world help clean the air, enrich the soil, and give fruit and shade.

With a nod to Kenyas successful Green Belt Movement, Diane Muldrows elegant text celebrates the life and hope that every tree—from Paris to Brooklyn to Tokyo—brings to our planet. Perfect for young readers!
