I received this from Walker Books recently after seeing it on Twitter a few times and falling in love with the cover illustration.
Got a chance to savour it this afternoon!
A beautiful little story about a young girl and mother who take an annual trip to ‘their’ tree, through a town on a bus and a bit of a walk.
There is a simple rhyming structure throughout which gives a pleasant pace to the story, the pace matching the journey and the shared experience.
The illustrations by Chuck Groenink beautifully match the story, feeling very late summer / autumnal and give the whole a very traditional feel to it.
A wonderfully sweet and warming story, felt like a hug throughout, and scanned really well when I read it out loud.
