Very poignant, loved the perspective of the tree. Seemed a little abbreviated - could have been fleshed out a little more, but still good. Maybe not quite as good as The One and Only Ivan. Worth reading.
Excellent read! Theme of kindness resonates throughout the book! Read to 5th graders at my school.
I loved the message in this book. In these times of division and hatred, Applegate has written a story of the importance of stories, history, inclusion, and humanity. I will definitely be reading this book to my class and asking our librarian to buy it for our school.
This book is masterfully and beautifully written! To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. Katherine Applegate has an incredible gift.
Nice little story. Perfect for today's social climate.
