Book Review: The Apple Tree's Discovery by Peninnah Schram and Rachayl Eckstein Davis, Illustrated by Wendy W. Lee

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

The Apple Tree's Discovery is about a small apple tree that wants to be like some of the other trees in the oak forest. One of the things it really wants is stars because it has noticed how the other trees usually have stars dangle on the edges of their branches at night. When the tree asks for stars from God he tries to let it know what other gifts it has, like providing shade and growing apples. The tree soon discovers that it has had stars all along, just not like it thought it did.

The book is designed for ages 5-9 and grades K-3. I recommend it for all children’s reading programs in this age group.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Kar-Ben Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
