Ted Kooser’s House Held Up by Trees, illustrated by Jon Klassen, is a visually beautiful children’s book. Yet, the text of the book left me wondering if the story was really completed. This book isn’t something I would recommend for children to read independently due to its sometimes difficult syntax and the sometimes awkward flow of the text, but it is a great book for parents to read to pre-school and early elementary aged children. At a solid 4 out of 5 stars, this picture book tells the story of a house slowly being reclaimed by the trees and about the life of the family who once lived there. Klassen’s illustrations really bring this story alive. Still, I was left wondering what message Kooser meant to send with this book. Then again, maybe he meant to leave the theme ambiguous and open to interpretation. Overall, this really is a beautiful book, just practice reading it to yourself a couple times before you read it to your kids.
