I chose this book because my son had purchased other books at the school book fair that had the same artwork and my son really loved the stories as well as the colorful and unique art. It has become a classic for my family. The story is simple but relatable and I think I love the story as much as he did back then. The narrator is a man, so I would read this story with a Carolina accent in a slow, deeper mans voice (sounding much like the guy (unnamed) from the Motel 6 commercials) I recommend this for any collection of books for those who keep books to pass on to other generations.
An old tree of obvious character was discovered on the site where a family's new house was to be built.The youngest child could not say "tree"; it came out "Steve", and after enough begging by the children,the father told the builder to spare it. The story of Steve is a letter written by the father to the children who are visiting their grandmother.It recaps how Steve, without speaking, seeming to think or in any way behaving other than a tree should, was so much a part of their family, and how he will continue to do so.
This is a touching story, but the only 'sap' here is in old Steve.The quirky illustrations enhance the modernity of the story, but I believe that the book is timeless.
I love this book.
