I chose this book because the love and devotion that the tree has for the boy in the story is heart warming and inspiring. It will definitely get my students to think about who and what in their lives they are loving and devoting to in the way the Tree was for the boy. The illustrations are minimal but, still something I think my students will enjoy as a result of the captivating story. The captivating story definitely compliments the minimal drawings. Age Group: 4-8 years old.
This is a Picture Story Book about a girl who does not want to be made fun of for loving lima beans. On the first day of school, she develops stripes!!!! This is a really cute book to teach individuality and self-confidence.
