    1. Picked this book up at a used bookstore for my baby cousin, who I'm determined to make into a reader if it kills me. But it takes short sentences and lots of pictures to keep her interested and I saw this one on the dollar pile so I thought, why not?So naturally I read it to make sure it was appropriate for an almost 3 year old and was surprised that I kinda want a copy for myself!I like how the flow of the story felt like a poem to me and I love the idea behind the story, explaining why some tr [...]

    2. This is one of my all time favorite children's books. I read it to my first grade class every year when we studied trees. I always asked them what this book was really about. "Trees," would always be the first answer and then I would tell them that it was but to think about what the author was trying to say about people through his story about trees. They always came up with don't hurt your friends and don't be greedy. One day one sweet little boy said, "Oh it's about God and how we might have t [...]

    3. This is one of my favorite books in the entire world. I had it when I was little and lost it :( Finally, my mom was able to locate it again and ordered it for me for Christmas. Is it a great story that is similar to a folk tale because it gives reasoning to why something is a certain way. It tells a story about a tree maker who creates the trees. It has beautiful illustrations of what the trees looked like. When they trees became angry and greedy, there is great destruction in the forest. There [...]

    4. My mother met the author of this story and purchased a signed copy for me. This is an adorable moral story about a "tree maker" and why some trees loose their leaves in the winter-time while others stay "evergreen".

    5. This is a parable regarding living in harmony with one another versus being greedy. It also gives a non-scientific explanation of why deciduous trees lose their leaves every winter, and postulates the existence of a 'tree maker' so might be considered slightly religious.

    6. John Gile did a beautiful job of showing others how to be caring for one another. It brings to the reader a sense of peace and the desire to make the world a better place to share.

    7. This is a really cute kids book. It explains why some trees lose their leaves in winter and why some don't. It just a cute story.

    8. A lovely, lyrical book that explains why some trees lose their leaves and others remain evergreen. A wonderful companion piece to "The Man Who Planted Trees" and other ecological fables.
