Review of Skinny Little Tree
The book tells the story of a little boy who meets up with a tree who in the beginning is happy. The sun is shining, a bird is singing on its branch and all is right in the world for the tree. The story moves into the different seasons with the skinny little tree changing as the seasons do. The boy interacts with the tree asking it questions as life moves along.
On every other page, the young reader is asked to draw a picture in response to what is going on in that particular season. For example drawing leaves.
This is a very quick read and definitely for the young child. I would say probably birth up to 4.
I wish I could say I was impressed with this picture book but alas, I was not. I found the pictures to be dull and cheesy. I also did not think much of the story itself. Even though it was an easy read and good for the age level, I thought that it did not have much of a story line for it.
I can only give this book: 2 stars.
However, I hope this author can do well in her next book.
Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my open and honest opinion. The opinion expressed here are 100% my own.
