The Book Tree
The Book Tree is about a boy named Arlo who loved books. One day the book slipped out of his hands and bonked the mayor on the head. The mayor didn’t like that and thought it was dangerous, so he ripped up every book in town, and then he dropped all the ripped pages onto the ground. Without books, people could not do anything. Then Arlo was very sad and then felt brighter and then wrote his own books. Then Arlo read the stories to the people who passed by, but they didn’t seem to notice. There was a book tree growing, and he kept reading stories to the tree. The more he read to it, the taller the tree grew. Everybody started having books again. When a book fell on the mayor’s head, he wanted to know who planted the trees. Actually, he did, but he didn’t know that. He saw the books made the world a better place, so he liked them.
I think I like books as much as Arlo does. Because without books, I would be pretty sad. I think I know how much Arlo loves those books and how much the mayor hates those books. The illustrations are smart because they use copies of actual books.
