This is a book I will happily share with my 3 year old granddaughter throughout her childhood.
At first, I am sure she will enjoy a synopsis of this fable, while focusing on the beauty of the photography and the imaginary conversations occurring among the forest trees.
What a wonderful way to stimulate her sense of make-believe and awe!
As she gets older, I know she will appreciate the story of Max’a move from one home to another, as she experiences along with Max the changes which take place when a child is transplanted.
“A Tree for Max” is a book which continues to grow along with a child as he/she journeys through life and will bear fruit all along the way.
Disclosure: I personally know Jerry Halberstadt and was given a copy of “A Tree for Max“, my review was unsolicited and my opinions are as always my own.
