Everybody’s Tree is the kind of book that you’re hoping will be amazing because it definitely has potential, especially if you like trees. Unfortunately, it is just not that interesting. Comparing it to a book like Apple Tree Christmas, which is really well done because you get to know and love the tree like the characters in the story before anything happens to it, Everybody’s Tree just doesn’t capture your heart or imagination. Before you have a chance to really care about the tree, you find out that it’s going away, and then the rest of the story is just about a big tree that’s, as the title implies, for everybody. It’s good as a library book, but not the kind of story you’d want to read over and over again. The pictures are nice, though.
