Britta Teckentrup book review

Tree by Britta Teckentrup

Tree written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup is such a beautiful book that I LOVE to read aloud to my son. Her rhymes will push new readers to grow their vocabulary (which is one of the many reasons we read!). The art style is distinguished and lovely, and the story follows a satisfying, circular plot as we witness the changing seasons. So much happens to (and around!) 1 tree and 1 owl in 1 year. The owl seems to be the observer of the forest, but the story is chock-full of animals and plants. The reader views all this growth, change and variety of nature with unique peek-through pages.

What’s your favorite season? Why? I’m completely cold-natured and LOVE vacationing in warm, sunny places like the beach. BUT, I gotta say my favorite season is winter. I’m a January-baby (and like any proper lady we celebrate the whole birth month), but more importantly I’m obsessed with Christmas!! Sorry, if my book review got derailed. I’m just being authentic. I hope you are authentic, too.
