Dear Tree is a beautiful look at the unique relationship between a little boy and his favorite tree. By thinking of what every tree needs in order to thrive and grow, the boy figures out exactly what to wish for his own special tree in the coming year. And so begin his hopeful words, “Dear Tree.”
May you have a year filled with sunlight,
A year full of delicious rain,
A year of beautiful blossoms,
Shiny green leaves,
And sweet fruit with many seeds inside.
Illustrated by an artist known for her outstanding depictions of the natural world, Dear Tree focuses on the seasons of the tree’s growth, as buds open into blossoms, and finally yield ripe fruit. Perfect for Tu B’Shvat and all year round, Dear Tree is sure to appeal to young children and to those who will be reading it aloud over and over again!
