Oliver’s Tree by Kit Chase
I love a good book for myself and even more I love a great book for my children. Oliver’s Tree by Kit Chase is a great book that’s beautifully illustrated and well written. It’s sure to be a timeless classic in our family and I hope you pick it up and add it to your bookshelf because it’s truly worth it. I was provided a copy of Oliver’s Tree for review from the publisher.
This is one of the cutest books I’ve seen recently. My daughter who’s six really enjoyed it so much. She loved reading this story to her younger siblings. The story is simply written so young readers can easily understand and be able to read and enjoy the book themselves. The illustrations are amazingly drawn and they would make great art pieces on their own. They remind me of classic story book drawings. I would definately buy prints or bedding of the characters for my infant or toddler because we loved them so much. I enjoyed how the writer showed that even the youngest among us can teach us about true friendship and loyalty. Oliver’s friends went above and beyond to make sure they made him feel welcomed and that he wasn’t being left out. Even when Oliver gave up hope they did everything they could to make sure their friend knew just how much he mattered to them. This is a great read it would make an excellent gift to a young reader.

Oliver, Charlie, and Lulu love to play outside together. Their favorite game is hide-and-seek, but it’s not fun for Oliver when his friends hide in the trees—he can’t reach them! So the friends set off to find a tree that Oliver can play in.
But there’s a reason we don’t see elephants in trees, and just when Oliver is ready to give up the search, Charlie and Lulu surprise him with the perfect tree for them all to play in together!
