We planted a tree – book review


[2 years +] We Planted a Tree – by Diane Muldrow and illustrated by Bob Staake.

This book will warm your heart and is full of talking points and great information about the benefits of trees, that is easy enough for young children to understand.  I could read it over and over!


Different cultures are featured throughout the book as well as how they are all similar, sharing family time and growing up together, as the trees and gardens do too.


The illustrations are beautiful and have plenty to look at.  There are also features indicating a certain country on each page, that can be discussed with your little one.


You will need to read this book several times just to be able to track the different families featured and to take in all that is has to offer.



Why not get online and reserve this at your library in light of National Tree Day, or buy a beautiful present for someone?  Enjoy!

About heidelightful

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
