Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 4—With a synergistic mesh of lyrical language and bright, expansive illustrations, this picture book enumerating the many benefits of trees is a winner. Muldrow's poetic text shapes beauty from simple observations: "The sunshine went into the buds,/And soon they burst open./Everywhere it was pink./And we were dizzy/With springtime." As the text describes the growth of the tree and the many benefits it provides (shade, clean air, fruit, sap, and holding the soil, among others), Staake's signature modernized cartoon-style illustrations circle the globe, showing families in New York, Vermont, Japan, Kenya, France, and Italy as they enjoy what the trees have to offer. Enjoyable and informative, this beautiful presentation of a clear ecological message is perfect for sharing on Earth Day, Arbor Day, or in ecology units.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

From Booklist

A family in Brooklyn plants a tree in their small backyard; turn the page and a Kenyan family plants a tree on the bare African savannah. Then in Paris, Tokyo, and more places across the globe, each newly planted tree grows up, as the children in the family do. Muldrow weaves some science into the lines: “Sunshine went into the leaves / And brought food to the tree,” and through the seasons, the trees grow beautiful pink blossoms, green leaves that help clean the air, and fruit, while their roots keep the soil from blowing away and provide a place for families to plant food. Illustrating the simple poetry are clean-lined digital illustrations that show the botany details and celebrate the connections between plants and people, present and long-term, across time and space, as each generation continues the conservation efforts and helps “heal the earth.” Grades K-3. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Hardcover
The prose in this book is just wonderful. Just enough repetition to keep younger reader's attention while still imparting some important lessons on how planting a tree impacts the people who planted it as well as the world around it. Which sounds like it'd be a really 'heavy' book, but it's not! Even my older kids were smiling when they finished this book. While the illustrations come back to the two families who plant trees at the beginning of the book, there are pages showing other families/people in other places enjoying trees. (admit I'm still trying to figure out if one page is Greece or Italy, not that it matters since either work!) I also enjoyed that as the tree 'grew', so did the people. I also like that the focus is on what a living tree provides, as opposed to all the uses of wood.

On a side note, if you're looking for a wonderful book to read for Tu B'Shevat (a Jewish holiday which celebrates 'the birthday of the trees'/spring), I'd highly recommend this book.

This is a great little book for teaching kids to appreciate nature and the value of its preservation for the future of families and animals all over the world. Colorful and lovely illustrations.

Disappointment: not printed on recycled paper or soy-based inks, which sends a mixed message to customers

We Planted a Tree is a sweet story that is told through a gentle, lulling poem. Diane Muldrow manages to explain the benefits of trees without lecturing and in a way that is a delight to read out loud. And in a way that an active four-year-old boy can understand and enjoy.

Bob Staake illustrated this lovely poem-story, so that should automatically translate as the artwork in the is book is brilliant. If you are not familiar with Mr. Staake's work, it is brilliant; both as in colorful-brilliant and in clever-brilliant, and infused with a healthy dose of humor.

We Plant a Tree IS a perfect book for Earth Day, and for every day thereafter.

Our 4 year old son enjoys the book, and we love it!
The art of Bob Staake is captivating, as always, for the littles and grown-ups alike. He included his "Donut Chef" on one of the pages, and our son is now on the hunt for any other "Easter eggs" he's hidden along the way.
The poem is beautiful and meaningful (yes, to the four year old as well). It was a great way to introduce poetry to our bookshelf.
We're so happy about this gorgeous addition to our library of "tuck-in" stories.
And we're probably biased because we planted a tree when each of our children were born...so they could watch the tree grow up with them.
