Synopsis

Jonathan and the Tree by Gilad Goldschmidt

Today, the mulberry tree spoke to me, said Jonathan at dinner, in a moment of quiet. His mother looked at him strangely, and his father coughed. His sister laughed out loud. Really, really, said Jonathan, his eyes filling with tears. Jonathan is a quiet little boy. He loves to dream and play by himself, and feels that the other children at kindergarten don't like him. One day, the mulberry tree in his back garden starts to talk to him. It tells him what the weather is going to be, and warns him of a fire. Their friendship deepens. But as Jonathan grows up, will he still remember the tree? This is a charming story book about love, loss, loneliness and friendship, and about how children can connect to places in ways that adults cannot.

Reviews

'a touching story of a boy and his friendship with a tree. It gives pictures of life's changes and challenges and the power of friendship to heal. The beautiful illustrations carry the story straight to the heart and encourage the imagination.'

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
