Our Tree Named SteveOur Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Steve, the center of the family’s outdoor life. The tree that was spared, firmly rooted in the backyard and in each of their hearts. It has served them well, season after season as a faithful refuge. Holding their swing, hammock, and clothesline like a pro. When dad has to deliver some bad news about their faithful friend Steve, he handles it with care as he writes his children a letter to send to them while they are staying at Grandma’s house.

This story is sweet, especially as you take in the soft tones of color that warm each page, pulling the reader into the story along with this charming family. This story was shared with me by one of my students and is their family’s all-time favorite. I am thankful that they gave me this glimpse into their reading life and that I had the chance to enjoy it too. I feel as though this text would pair well with Katherine Applegate’s latest gem, Wishtree.
