Personification: The point of view is from the tree. The tree’s voice is heard through a rhyming text about a tree from its roots to its branches.
Author’s Purpose: The simple text provides the reader with the basic information about how a tree grows, what lives in it, and what lives below it. The youngest reader will know more about trees after reading this book.
Reader’s Theater: The rhyming couplets read by young children dressed as tree inhabitants would be a wonderful production!
