I recently received The Tree - An Environmental Fable by Neal Layton as a review copy from Candlewick Press and thought this was a perfect book for young readers. The illustrations convey this story easily with just enough details. The text is simple and large to read. The book begins showing different animals that use the tree as a home. The reader is then introduced to new characters; humans with plans for the space where the tree is. Their plan includes cutting the tree down but those plans are halted when they make a discovery that brings tears to the wives eyes. They adjust their plans so all the characters in this book are able to enjoy and benefit from this tree. A perfect reminder that humans can and should co-exist with nature.
Thank you Candlewick Press and for promoting #readkindbekind
