There’s A Tree On My House
By Judith Victoria Douglas
A small maple seed is blown by the wind and lands on the corner of the roof of a house and the seed is so protected there that it begins to grow. Sadie, the little girl who lives in the house is playing with her cousins, Ava and Abby in the yard, running around with their balloons when one of the balloons gets loose and floats up toward the seedling. So that their cousin isn’t sad, the other two girls let their balloons free too. They believe the seedling tried to catch the first balloon, and run in to tell their mother that there is a tree on their house. Their mother and father help to save the tree from growing on their house. Thus, the story of the tree on the house has started.
I really enjoyed this book and I believe children will enjoy it too. There are lots of extras included with the book a tree that a child can color and decorate with included clip art, and extra pages to illustrate a child’s own tree story. 5 out of 5 stars.
