Wishtree – Katherine Applegate
Our daughter is always eager to read Katherine Applegate’s newest book. Wishtree did not disappoint. This story is told from the point of view of Red, who is an enormous Red Oak Tree. The tree serves as the “wishtree” for the entire neighborhood. This is a beautifully written book about friendship and community that sticks with you and makes you think.
The Boy Who Loved Words – Roni Schotter
We love this book! Selig enjoys collecting all sorts of interesting words to keep for himself. After helping a poet complete his work with some of his collected words, Selig discovers sharing his word collection with others is a true delight. This word filled adventure is fun to read, and you may even be able to add a new word or two to your own vocabulary after being introduced to Selig’s collection!
