About this title


A charming introduction to the Jewish tree-planting holiday of Tu B'Sh'Vat is accompanied by information on tree-planting holidays around the world, instructions for growing a tree, and the story of young Pearl as she and her grandfather nurture and plant her tree.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?On a nostalgic trip to his first home in America, Pearl's grandfather shows her a tree that he planted. This inspires Pearl to plant her own, beginning with an apple seed that she pots and tends over the long cold winter, all the while dreaming of picnics under a fruit-laden tree. The first leaves poke through in time for Pearl and Grandpa to plant the seedling outside come spring. This is a quiet, poetic story with romantic, meticulously detailed illustrations to enhance the mood. Zalben adds a page on tree-planting holidays throughout the world, a page on the Jewish tree-planting holiday, Tu b'Shvat, and another of midrashim, talmudic stories about how to grow a tree. A satisfying addition, featuring very humanlike sheep characters, for religious and secular collections.?Marcia W. Posner, Holocaust Memorial and Educational Center of Nassau County, Glen Cove, NY
