Book Review-Sylvia Rose and the Cherry Tree -

Book Description:

Bold, adventurous Sylvia Rose loves visiting the animals and trees of the forest. The girl and her favorite cherry tree share almost everything, including dancing and stories, but they can’t travel the world together because the tree is rooted deep in the earth. Determined to overcome this obstacle, Sylvia Rose enlists her animal friends to uproot the glorious tree, and Sylvia and the tree set off globetrotting together, taking in the wonders of the world from the Eiffel Tower to the Sydney Opera House, each sight more amazing than the last.

Back home in the forest, however, the animals begin to suffer without the food and shelter of their life-sustaining cherry tree. Can the tree give up her newfound freedom and return to her role in the forest ecosystem?

My Review:

Sylvia Rose and The Cherry Tree is a story filled with imagination and adventure. The love and dedication the little girl has the for the tree is sweet. The adventures Sylvia Rose journeys on are mystical and education as well. The theme of the book is clear, travel is fun but home is where the heart is. The illustrations in this book are breathtaking and show the greatness of Mother Nature.
