My Bent Treeby Kathy Brodsky
My Bent Tree is a delightful, heart-warming story told in rhyme about friendship and love between a little girl and a tree. If the tree had been perfect, no one would have given it a second glance, but it’s because it looked different, that the girl stopped to examine it more closely.
The story spans many years and shows how we care for each other in relationships – through good and often difficult times. It’s also about accepting differences, living with a disability, and environmental activism. Discussion questions follow the story.
A lot happens in this seemingly simple story about a unique friendship.
