Call Me Tree / Llámame arbol (2014) by Maya Christina Gonzalez and translated by Dana Goldberg.
This bilingual poem celebrates the size, power, and grandeur of trees. The simple words are expanded upon in the colorful and imaginative illustrations. The young narrator is joined by more and more children as he continues to dream and imagine what it would be to become a tree. This is a great story for environmental or Earth Day purposes, as well as a story for encourage children to be themselves and explore who they can become.
The Poetry Friday roundup is over at No Water River this week.
