Review: The Wish Tree
Charles wanted to find a wish tree but his brother and sister scoffed at the idea. His brother suggested he “bring a map” and his sister said, “Don’t forget the compass,” but Charles’ friend Boggan (his red toboggan sled) believed and went with him to search for a wish tree.
THE WISH TREE by Kyo Maclear is a special picture book that reminds kids of the power of magic. When Charles and Boggan go on their hunt for the wish tree they have fun, make lots of friends, and even make a wish tree of their own. It’s a sweet, gentle story of friendship and love. Chris Turnam‘s gorgeous, muted illustrations add to the beauty of this wonderful book. Once you read it, you’ll want to share it with the little ones in your life.
I will link this up to Booking Mama’s Saturday feature, Kid Konnection. If you’d like to participate in Kid Konnection and share a post about anything related to children’s books (picture, middle grade, or young adult) from the past week, leave a comment as well as a link on her site.
