A tree, growing up with other little trees, is scared to let go of his leaves in the autumn. He is warm with them, he is used to them and he fears the change.
Through the cold winter, he keeps his leaves, but in the spring the other trees grow new leaves, and grow taller and the squirrels and birds no longer visit Little Tree.
Next autumn Little Tree is still scared, and holds onto his brown leaves. We see the forest and animals changing through the seasons and trees grow tall around him. Little Tree no longer has sunlight.
But then, he does something very brave, he lets go of his leaves. And he is indeed cold in the winter, but in the spring, he grows green leaves, and he grows and by the end of the book he is a tall tree, with the squirrels and birds playing in his leaves.
This book is primarily about how change is scary and how Little Tree has to be courageous to drop his leaves. Although we were able to discuss lots of science, why leaves fall from trees, why they need leaves and sunlight to grow, clearly Little Tree wouldn’t be able to survive several years without green leaves. But I am willing to overlook that as the science conversation it supported was useful.
Each page has a clear and simple step in the story which is so appealing, we discuss what is happening before moving on and I think gives the book anticipation when re-reading.
Overall though, I love the peace and gentleness of this book. It really is just lovely and more than a book about a tree, it is just perfect for children.
