Netta and Her Plant

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Natascia Ugliano. This story follows a family through years of Tu B'Shevat (Jewish New Year for trees) celebrations. Netta, her special plant, and her family get bigger, outgrow their spaces, then adapt to new homes. The intensely detailed drawings clearly depict Netta's relationships and her evolving life. With the plant as a consistent reference point, the narrative addresses many potentially challenging life changes with a straightforward, reassuring approach. Glos.
