Review by Eliana12

It was a cute idea - about how the book it told from a tree's perspective and the tree wants to help a little girl - but i didn't really like it that much.

Couldn't book the book down!

Review by BusDriverBuggie5

Wishtree is a emotional, humorous, and heartwarming story. It's a bit of a short story, but long enough that when you're Mom calls you down for dinner, you won't stand to put that book down! I recommend this book for all nature lovers, animal lovers, and really anyone! This book has so much detail, pictures, and exotic details!

Review by Akisa

This book teaches that you should appreciate everything you have and that magic might sometimes be real! Some moments aren't very clear though in my understanding, otherwise, this book is amazing!
