It’s MY Tree

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.

A Rainforest Adventure: Jasper Amazon Parrot Book 1

If your child likes birds and wants to learn more about them through a cute little story, then I recommend A Rainforest Adventure: Jasper Amazon Parrot Book 1 by Sharon C. Williams. This short little story is about a little Amazon parrot named Jasper and his adventures with his younger brother Willie as they explore their home in the Amazon.

Jasper discovers what it’s like to have a sibling and to compete for their mom’s attention. He also, learns valuable lessons about how important it is to listen to his mom. Jasper and Willie learn other lessons exploring the jungle together and the new friends they make.

I received a complimentary digital copy of A Rainforest Adventure: Jasper Amazon Parrot Book 1 by Sharon C. Williams from the author herself. The views are mine and of my own choice. This story was cute and colorful in its description of Jasper, his family and home. Growing up with a parrot myself it was fun to read a children’s book that has a parrot as the main character. Thank you for reaching out to me Sharon. I look forward to reading about Jasper’s other adventures.
