It's Tu B'Shevat

Kar-Ben/Lerner  2005

Not to be mistaken as part of another set of holiday books by Latifa Berry Kropf from Kar-Ben that all begin with “It’s” (It’s Purim Time!), this is for even younger children. It is about a little boy and his family who plant a tree and think about the good things that trees provide, like shade, cleaner air, a home for birds, and a place to hang a swing. The simple rhyming text moves fluidly from one page to the next and the slightly stylized illustrations, in a soothing color palette, are serene. Most trees don’t grow as fast as the one in this story but the concept of yearly growth is conveyed nicely. For ages 3–5.
