Today’s Magical Read is This Tree Counts by Alison Formento
If you listen carefully to the lone tree behind Oak Lane School, it has a story to tell about… one owl, two spiders, three squirrels, four robins, five caterpillars, six ants, seven crickets, eight flies, nine ladybugs, and ten earthworms, all living safe and free in their tree home.
What does this tree need? The children know — it needs friends!
Alison Formento’s gentle story, illustrated with Sarah Snow’s beautiful papercuts, whispers important ideas to all young tree lovers.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s magical read. All of these titles and more will be available at the Liberty States Fiction Writers conference book fair on March 19th from 5:30-7:00pm.
