The Book Tree by Paul Czajak and Rashin Kheiriyeh

9781782854050_9618fHere’s just a very quick “review” of an adorable new children’s book from Barefoot Books!

After a misguided mayor removes all of the books from town, a bold little boy plants seeds of stories that sprout and grow to inspire a whole new generation of readers.
This is a brightly imaginative story that shows the love, magic, and power of reading.

About the Book
When young Arlo accidentally drops a book on the Mayor’s head, the Mayor decides books are dangerous and destroys all the books in town! But thanks to Arlo’s imagination and perseverance, the Mayor finds that suppressing stories cannot stop them from blossoming more beautifully than ever. This timely allegorical tale will be a useful tool for starting conversations with children about the power of activism and the written word.
