Staff Reviews


Narrated by an ancient oak tree named Red who watches over the neighborhood and extends his branches every year for people to hang wishes on them. When a new family moves into the neighborhood, not everyone is welcoming. Samar befriends a local boy under the tree and together with hope -- and unknowingly, Red, they seek to make things okay for Samar and her family. Wishtree is the story of kindness and hope. A cast of animal characters bring this story to life. A timely, important and very accessible book. A small book with a big heart. Perfect for One Book, One School programs and book clubs. -- Kristen Gilligan, owner

Wishtree by Katherine Applegate is another sweet story by this author of The One and Only Ivan. Narrated by a tree, this clever book tells of the happenings in a neighborhood. The tree's neutral point of view lets the reader decipher and judge the story as it unfolds. A very short read, but with a very positive message of hope. Would be a great read aloud for a classroom.

— Kelly S., School Librarian at St. Mary's of Littleton in Littleton, CO
