Little Tree by Loren Long
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sweet, gentle story about embracing change from the creator of Otis. The poor little tree refuses to drop "his" leaves (why is the tree male?) and so his friends grew up tall around him, while he remained little. Eventually he has the guts to drop his leaves and he begins to grow, too.
The animals who come to check out the tree are the best part--cute deer and critters.
Not sure why the publisher sent me two matted illustrations from this book. If anyone wants one and is in my library system, let me know.
