Oliver’s Tree

We rated this book:


A rabbit, a bird, and an elephant are friends and they like to play outside. One time they played hide-and-seek, and Lulu, the bird, hid in a tree. Then Oliver, the elephant, found her but he couldn’t reach her. He said trees aren’t fair; no one can reach them. But Lulu said they’re the best hiding spots. Charlie, the rabbit, said they could find a tree for Oliver. First they found a low-down-to-the-ground tree, but it was so so small. Then they found a bigger tree, and it was too high. And then they found a ‘just right’ tree, until… Crash! It wasn’t strong enough. So then Oliver felt sad because he couldn’t be in a tree. Then Oliver walked and walked until he was too tired to walk one more step. The bird and the rabbit followed him, and then they had an idea. They did this: they gathered sticks, moss, flowers and leaves and that stuff. They nudged and pulled and pushed until the tree was perfect. And when Oliver woke up, they said, “Surprise!” and they played happy together. I think this book is very fun and I love it a lot. The pictures, the drawings, and the story all make me feel happy.
