Costa, Nicoletta The Little Tree That Would Not Share. PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2016. $17. Content: G.
The little tree is beautiful, but he is also selfish. He won’t let anything land or nest in his branches, because he doesn’t want anything to spoil his magnificence. When autumn comes and his leaves turn color and fall, it takes one of those he scorned to explain what is actually happening to him.
Being kind of the opposite of The Giving Tree, this is a cute little book to launch a discussion of the seasons, or to take about sharing and friendship.
