A little toy truck painted yellow and blue is resting under the tree along with the morning dew. A big, lazy dog is silently sleeping like a log under the tree whereas boys are retreating to the cool of its shade. There is an old tire swing under the tree and birds chirp songs there and flap their wings. Daddies lounge there after a hard day's work and watch their children play. Three tired men sit under the tree and share memories they will never forget and watch the sunset together. Have you ever thought about the things that can happen under the tree in your yard? If not, this book will make you think about it.

Under the Tree by Tonya Woods is a beautiful story that will make readers aware of the trees around them and how seamlessly they fit into their lives. This book will encourage readers to appreciate the trees and greenery around them more than before. The activities at the end of the book are good to use for interactive group activities in classrooms and are a good learning experience for young readers. The illustrations by Lyric Evans are bright and colorful and they add to the charm and appeal of the story, along with breathing life into the concept and giving it clarity. It is a good book to have in one's personal collection too because of the way in which the author takes readers closer to nature and makes them more observant of their surroundings and nature.


My daughter loved the book and the coloring pages in the back! It’s a great read for young children.
