Reviews

"A charming account of a family who went to Canada to plant a million trees. . . . Balouch uses childlike drawings to give the story an appealing authenticity. . . . This excellent resource about conservation and preserving nature has been ably rolled into a delightful reminiscence vividly retold."-School Library Journal, Starred Review

"[A] Tree-mendous autobiographical picture book. . . . Short, breezy recollections propel the narration. . . . The bright, expansive digital illustrations have a collaged-scrapbook appearance, chockablock with intriguing details. . . . Heartening lessons in ecology, math, and teamwork are smoothly sown."-Booklist

"An educational tale of forest stewardship. . . . Balouch's rough-hewn shapes, which have the feel and texture of cut paper, attend this idyllic 1970s-era tale about the positive impact people can have when they work together."-Publishers Weekly

"The simply written, straightforward text is rich with interesting information. . . . The digital illustrations-rendered in a naive art style-are busy, making for detailed spreads that beg to be pored over; they also capture the British Columbia landscape, including its distinctive flora and fauna. . . . An intriguing tale that will plant seeds of environment consciousness in the upcoming generation."-Kirkus Reviews
