Un árbol para Emmy

Peachtree. Jul. 2023. 32p. pap. $8.99. ISBN 9781682635476. SP.
Gr 1-3–Emmy is a tree lover. She enjoys her days with her grandmother’s silk tree, which turns out to be very much like Emmy—tall, stubborn, and a little wild. The little girl decides she wants a wild tree of her own. To her disappointment, they don’t sell those kinds of trees at stores. She almost gives up, but eventually, Emmy finds a small shoot of a wild tree and plants it in her own yard. Emmy has white skin and brown hair. The colorful collage art presents each step in her search, sometimes using insets shaped as hearts and always filled with emerald greens.
VERDICT A lovely and joyous picture book that highlights overcoming obstacles with determination and patience; it also celebrates the importance of taking care of the environment.
