If you need an adorable little picture book for your child on the topic of greed and selfishness then It’s MY Tree is just the right book. This cute picture book follows a little squirrel and his determination to not let any other squirrels get an opportunity at taking away his precious tree and the pinecones that come with it. He thinks building a fence, or even a tall wall will protect his tree from others. The problem with isolating his tree is that then he wondered, “What if there is a better tree over the wall with bigger pinecones?”
I received my complimentary copy of It’s MY Tree by Olivier Tallec from Kids Can Press, care of NetGalley. The views are mine and of my own choice. The illustrations in this book are sweet and quite expressive. I think this story shows how being greedy ultimately equals loneliness because you refuse to let anyone else in.
