School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Tu B'Shevat, a minor Jewish holiday, is celebrated in January or February and commemorates the environmental need to plant new trees. In a cumulative rhyme la "The House That Jack Built," a little boy and his grandfather plant a seedling and watch it develop into an apple tree as they grow older, passing on to succeeding generations the tradition of caring for the tree and enjoying its fruit. The rhyme reads aloud well and is complemented by very basic block-style watercolors showing a little boy's development into a man who eventually becomes a grandparent, and a tree that is also changing and maturing. A much-needed book for a holiday that is recognized with a minimal amount of literature on the shelf.-Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
