    1. Little Tree by Loren Long is a beautifully illustrated story of a young tree afraid of change, who despite encouragement from wilderness friends refuses to let go Simplistic and yet poignant this simple tale made me tear up as I read it to Sophia While the message was lost on one so young, children five to one hundred and two can find relevance to this tale and identify with little tree So clever how the author used a tree to share her message I loved Little Tree and it is my wish that it finds [...]

    4. Impulse grab at the library as I like the Otis stories and others illustrated by Long And oh goodness am I glad I did This is a fable that can be read for so many meanings, on so many levels, for so many different readers both young and old, that, yes, I m going to say it, it s a wince Modern Classic Much better than Rainbow Fish or Stella Luna or Guess How Much I Love You Deserving of all the accolades I do hope it s getting.Now, you who follow me and who read lots of picture books, don t misin [...]

    6. I saw Little Tree on a list of Ohio authored books and decided to check it out of my local library to jokingly read to my wife as a bedtime story She adored it so much that I actually bought her a copy for Christmas The illustrations are colorful and charming you can even distinguish the different types of trees based on the leaves As for the moral of the story, it s about learning to let go and allow yourself to grow Now whenever my wife is down or in a bad mood, I can just tell her It s time t [...]

    7. This book was AWESOME I love the inspirational message that this book gave The story starts off with trees that have been planted and you begin to see their growth All the trees begin to grow except, little tree The reason little tree doesn t grow is because he is holding onto his leaves Season after season, little tree continues to stay the same and never change The woodland animals begin to ask him why don t you let your leaves go Of course, the ending is simple and encouraging.This is a great [...]

    11. This was a sweet story with a good lesson in order to grow, you need to be willing to accept change, even if it s scary or uncomfortable It s a great parable for the kiddos, encouraging them to have new experiences and learn new things.The illustrations were also charming The vibrant colors make you want to sit and just look at the pictures for awhile.Minus points, though, for bad science This could so easily have been a useful book for cycling through the seasons and what happens in fall but fo [...]

    12. 1 This book is about a little tree who is afraid to let go of his leaves As the seasons continue to change, he learns that he must change with them.2 5 8 years, K 3, Lexile 580L3 This book would be beneficial to read aloud as an introduction to seasons or a science lesson about trees It would also be beneficial for a guidance class about personal growth 4 Students who like trees could benefit, but I think students who would benefit the most are the ones who show fear of change or have become set [...]

    16. A little tree is scared of change and will not let go of its leaves, until it realizes it has been left behind Doesn t quite work because the tree would have died, but enjoyable as a fable of change.

We discovered this book through Emily Arrow s wonderful Storytime Singalong album and you can check out the accompanying video for her Little Tree song here youtu EGO s7XMFxkThings I loved about this book the beautiful soft illustrations of the Little Tree, the trees around him and that they were all different and real types of trees, judging by the leaves and of course the adorable animal families that realistically wander in and out of the scenes I also did like the main point of the story, th [...]

    20. This book is creative Main character is a tree, it is not so easy to illustration , and they managed it Although it is a topic that was often written, the Book described fear from a whole new perspective Some books would tell kids, the best way to conquer fear is be brave not sure if that is the best way, if you are rave, blah blah blah While my perspective is like the one in this book Especially for female, based o statistical data and due to difference in hormone between male and female To co [...]

    21. This is a sweet little story, so appropriate for the season with a really profound lesson How can you grow if you don t let go I love everything about this book the story, the art, Little Tree s little friends, all of it.I had added this picture book to my Want to Read last year, but only came across it again today when I was gathering books to send to another branch Needless to say, this one stayed on my desk, in hopes that some small fry will come into the library and want a storytime.

    22. This is a charming illustrated story of a tree who refuses to change and loses the chance to grow It ends happily, although the cynic in me thinks the tree would have been doomed once it was under the canopy.

    24. This book has a neat message about being a late bloomer.A little tree is not keeping up with the changing of the seasons like the other, different trees around him But he eventually comes into his own, in his own time.The illustrations are wonderful.
