The Trees Have Hearts is A FINALIST IN THE READER'S FAVORITE CONTEST in both categories:Children - Grade K-3rd and Children - Educational
The book itself is visually beautiful and the illustrations are simply magical. I love the way the illustrator, Juli Hasegawa brings the trees to life by integrating the tree trunks, branches, leaves, and blossoms with the girls’ arms, and hair to create a stunning scene. With this book, I could not imagine in my head what these trees would look like in the main character’s imagination; but, the images truly help tell the story. They are GORGEOUS!
