It falls into the genre of children and activity book
Sadie and her two cousins, Abby and Ava, are playing in front of her house. Each little girl has a balloon. As they are playing the string slips from Ava's grasp and it starts to float away. Seeing their cousin cry the other two girls release their balloons to make her feel better.
As the girls watch they notice a tree growing on top of the house. Not knowing where it came from or how they ask Sadie's mom about it.
Trying to save the tree, it is taken down careful by a man who knows a lot about trees. He brings it to his greenhouse to take care of it in hopes of saving the little tree.
Time passes as the little girls wonder about their tree and how it is doing. They constantly ask about it. They all hope it will make it. The book is not very long so to say any more would give the ending away.
The book has activities inside for young children to work on from drawing to name tags. It is a cute little story for young readers
The book was received for free for an honest review.
I was a little wary of this book before starting it. A kids activity/storybook with no princesses or puppies or any of the other cutesy stuff typically found in small children's books. Would this book about a tree interest my child, or me? Would it hold her attention, or mine? I am pleased to be able to say yes, on both accounts.
There's a Tree on My House is about a little girl named Sadie, her two cousins Ava and Abby, and a tree named Molly Maple. One day while playing in Sadie's yard, the girls notice Molly growing on the roof. This book tells the story of how the girls saved Molly Maple.
The pictures are hand drawn and adorable. The characters are well written and sweet. They remind me of any other little girls I've ever met. I thought the activity sheets might get a little boring since there are at least 7 that are labeled "Draw On This Page" but my daughter enjoyed them and therefore, so did I. There are some fun facts to be had/learned about trees in the story. As well as lessons on caring for other living things,(plants and trees), and friendship.
All in all, the story kept us involved and interested. We were invested in finding out the outcome for Molly. This is a good book for young kids and I would recommend it.
