The Trees Have Hearts – Multicultural Kid-Lit Review



The Trees Have Hearts – Multicultural Kid-Lit Review


The Trees Have Hearts #kidlit #review #multicultural A child new to this county is sad because she doesn't have friends.  The trees are her friends and they help her to mature, stand-out and finally feel comfortable to make new friends.  A touching story of moving to a new place, emersing oneself in a new langage and finding courage via @MrsDBooks

Title:  The Trees Have Hearts
Author: Mrs. D.
Illustrator: Juli Hasegawa
Year of publication: 2012
Ages: 6-10


This is a story of a little girl from an expat family.  She comes to new surroundings and doesn’t know the culture or the language.  She really misses her friends and her grandmother in her homeland.  As a result, she has a really hard time making friends.  The kids from school tease her and say she is a mute or is deaf.  The constant teasing makes her sad.
The little girl loves to sit in the beautiful mature garden in the back of her house.  She sits and plays by herself among Sassy, the magnolia tree, and her two sisters; Chance the plum-tree, and Shadow, the weeping cherry tree, while the gentle old wind gently breaths fresh air through the new spring blossoms.  In a fit of despair (missing her friends and family back home), the magnolia tree whisper to the little girl, “I will be your friend”  in the girls native language – and a new close and lasting friendship is forged.  The Trees Have Hearts is a picturesque story of the power of the imagination – and how her first friends helped her to cope with a difficult situation.  And also, through the imagination of a young girl, the caring trees not only help her to adapt to a new environment but help her blossom into the beautiful, caring and social young lady that she ultimately becomes.
The imagery in this book is breathtaking.  While this book is great if you are moving to a new area – and how sometimes it can be scary!  Young children will love reading this book of how to build friendships far away.
Motivational and inspirational, This book received the Mom’s Choice Award – which evaluates services and products created for children and families.

About The Squishable Baby  


Hey!  I’m Lisa – the owner, operator, resident dyer and sewer, CEO, CFO, Administrative Assistant, Executive Assistant, President, Head Honcho, Accountant, payroll clerk, mailroom clerk and everything else you can imagine!
Many people ask how I came up with the name Squishable Baby.  Well, it’s because I have 3 very cute and sweet squishes in my life – Two sons (8 years old and 7 months) and one baby girl (4 years old).  They are my all and my everything.  Heavenly Father certainly blessed me with these three kiddos.  They drive me crazy and give me complete joy – at the same time.  How is that possible, you ask?
No clue.
Here, in my part of the internet, I blog – I dye – I sew – and I sell – and not necessarily in that order.  I care about the strength of the American family – so you will see me blogging about  relationship strengthening ideas, family togetherness activities, eco friendly tips, Squishable Baby softness, homeschooling, Natural parenting stuff, faith, and a whole lot about kids…kids…kids…and more kids.  I love to talk about how to keep kids safe and in school doing the right thing!
When I’m not blogging, I’m dyeing.  When I’m not dyeing, I’m sewing.  Yep.  I hand dye and sew Merino wool and bamboo pants for babies.  They are fun, soft and squishy pants that they can rough and tumble play in – or go out at night and be fancy in!  The fibers are certainly sustainable – and durable!  Perfect for environmentally cautious busy body squishes.
