Sweet little nature-loving girl loses her parents
lives with a harsh stepmother
loves a tree and a mouse
delivers eggs to beloved friends.
My first-graders predicted an ending:
Her tree grows back.
Her stepmother turns nice and doesn't spank her as much.
She cries on the stairs.
After we read the real ending, a sweet boy said,
"I wish there was another book to tell us the rest."
I predict you will love this book
and the beautiful pictures.

A book that touches the heart. I'm going to have to check it out. It reminds me of a MG book I'll soon be reviewing.
