Children’s Book Grow Tree Grow! *Review and Giveaway!*

We have reviewed many a children’s book on our blog, and it’s always lovely to find new authors and stories to introduce to the children.  Our most recent book review has been ‘Grow Tree Grow’ by Dom Conton and Anastasia Izlesou.

Grow Tree Grow children’s book

This book is part of the wonderful Wild Wanderers Series where books come together to share a fun insight into nature and the ever so changing environment that surrounds us.  This book, including the others in the series is a great way of introducing the eco system to your children as well as how nature changes, grows and develops.

The book takes on a tale from beginning in end in the form of a huge oak tree that lives over 1 thousand years.  Using fun and engaging language, this is a great way of showcasing to your children the process of the growth of a tree, as well as what challenges it faces.

Our review of Grow Tree Grow

This book has definitely grown on me (excuse the pun!)  At first I wasn.t sure about the language used and whether my 5 and 8 year old would understand it.  But they did!  The language uses some rhyming and poetic language (I wanted more!) and the kids loved this the best.  But what did stand out for me the most was the illustrations.  They are enchanting and absolutely stunning and each time we pick up this book, I spot something new on a page that I have not seen before.

What I didn’t notice on first inspection is that the book offers a glossary which i think is fantastic considering the book uses some words and phrases that the kids might ask about.  This is really useful.

The book is a real insight into how, even after a tree falls, life still continues and I found the moto of the story really resonating.  For the kids, it’s a great way of learning about nature and all things around us.  I really recommend reading this book whilst you are in the garden or perhaps take it to the park for a picnic, followed by a scavenger hunt – I am sure the kids would love that!

I also think this story would be great for a school’s book shelf!

The other stories included in the Wild Wanders Series are:

– Shine, Star, Shine!

– Blow Wind Blow!

– Swim Shark Swim!

– Leap, Hare, Leap!

I’d be really keen to read this soon!  To find out more about Grow Tree Grow children’s book, you can find more information here.

Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.

I really wanted a concrete place to share my love for travel, in particular Disney and offer my readers a chance to gain some knowledge around what we love to do as a family of 5.

I share our family adventures which include days out, travel advice and tips, holiday reviews, restaurant visits and of course, our love for Disney, including Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World.

Life is about creating memories, and here we are sharing them with you
