This Tree is Just for Me!
32pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
Jack was very excited. He had just received a new book in the mail and all he wanted was a small quiet nook so he could read it in peace. But with blackbirds tweeting and squirrels eating, he was having a hard time finding somewhere secluded so he decided to find a tree of his own. And there it was in the corner of the garden- the perfect tree! Or is it?
The perfect book for this year’s CBCA Book Week theme Dreaming with eyes open, this is a delightful story about being careful what you wish for and learning that there are times when sharing your good fortune is so much better than keeping it to yourself. With its rhyming text and vibrant illustrations, young readers will really be attracted to it and will want to share not only their favourite stories but their favourite places to read them. It’s the perfect opportunity to share Dr Seuss’s iconic poem and develop a stunning display for the beginning of the year… students can draw themselves reading or better still, share a photograph. Don’t forget to include yourself in it!
