The Trees Have Hearts – Book Review
Have you ever felt alone – always on the outside, looking in? Have you ever wanted to make new friends but felt unable to reach out? Have you ever wanted to be included in the activities of others but somehow were always overlooked?
Imagine how you would feel if you were a beautiful little girl – alone in a new country – unable to speak the native language. How sad would you feel if no one would talk to you – play with you – try to be your friend?
What would you do?
That’s the story behind The Trees Have Hearts by Ms. D – winner of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award.
In The Trees Have Hearts, our young heroine turns to nature and uses her imagination to make new friends and learn to rise above her challenges. In the process, she discovers strengths and inner resources she never knew she had – and learns the true meaning of friendship.
The Trees Have Heart is written from personal experience and is one of my favorite Mrs. D. Books to date. The illustrations by Juli Hasegawa are gorgeous and bring the story to life!
If you are looking for a beautifully written, beautifully illustrated inspirational children’s book for someone special – you can’t go wrong with The Trees Have Heart!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
