Dear Tree: A Tu B'Shvat Wish

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Phyllis Saroff. In honor of Tu B'Shvat, the "New Year for Trees," a young boy wishes his favorite crabapple a year of sun, rain, birds, blossoms, and the strength to endure storms: "May you stand, firm and straight, for years to come." The realistic illustrations are better at depicting nature than people. An explanation of the holiday closes the book. Glos.
