Every Tree Has It’s Place by Zach Wilson is a beautiful book for the under fives. It is based on Ephesians 2:10. “For we are God’s handiwork. Created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
The story has a simple message – we were created for a purpose, to help others and each one of us is special. This is reinforced throughout the book. The story is easy for little ones to follow and to join in.
The characters are Paw Paw Bear and his grandson Bridger. We see the unique relationship built across the generations, united by love and shared experiences.
All the book is beautifully illustrated by Mutiara Arum. The bears are appealing to all with their friendly faces. Each page is simply drawn but detailed that enable us to have discussions with our children.
I think every grandparent should buy a copy to share with their grandchildren. Every early years classroom should have a copy too.
I received a free copy from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
