I found “The Trees Have Hearts” by Mrs. D. a wonderful story filled with gorgeous illustrations. The imagination of children will be captured easily, just as easily at it did my imagination. A young girl is lonely after she and her mother moved from a European country to America. This little girl was lonely and could not speak the language the other kids used. Three trees in her yard become her friends in a completely mesmerizing way. The girl did start her new school, and she did learn the language. She made many friends, and even invited some friends to see her favorite three trees, after a summer camp adventure.

Later, she finds out that her mom has a new job, and that they are going to move again. This would be upsetting for a child, no matter the age. This situation never happened with my own children, but it did happen to me between my sophomore and junior years of high school (make sure to read the preface of this book). I could empathize with how the little girl felt. Many lessons are learned in this story, from how and why the trees have flowers, their purpose, the thoughts and feelings are normal, and the positive story outline. Parents should read this story to their child, unless said child is age eight or nine, as younger children won’t grasp some of the wordage. Five Stars!!
