THE CROW AND THE BIG OAK TREE






THE CROW AND THE BIG OAK TREE



  Once there was a big crow that  thought he was the most wonderful animal in the  forest!  
He didn't like the other animals because they were so different from him.
He thought he should have his own tree.
He didn't want the other animals in it.
One day something bad happened to the crow. Read the story
to find out what valuable lessons the crow learned.
Did these lessons make him think differently about the other animals living in the forest?

 MY THOUGHTS

First off, I loved the illustrations. They were so vivid and went along with the story.  
 A big black crow though he was just "IT", so very fine.  He thinks he is above all the other animals.  He decides that a certain tree is just as perfect as he is and that tree was HIS and no other animal could come up that tree.   Some animals were scared away by the crow when they tried to settle and make their homes there.  It was the black crow's and he wasn't going to share.   Two boys wanted to catch the crow and make a pet of it.   They throw rocks at it and then some bees attack the boys. The boys run in fear.  This little episode  caused the crow to realize he needed friends and it wouldn't hurt for him to share his home.  A lesson learned.  We all need friends and we all need to share.  Another lesson to learn,  it's not good to think you're better than everyone else.  So much for young readers to learn but in a fun way.   Great book for the young reader to have on his or her bookshelf.   Wonderful lessons in a fun way.

 I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 SOLID STARS.
