Review: The Sad Tree and Pronuba by:Christina Steiner

 
About the Book:
A Lonely Tree and a Special Friend... The desert is a lonely place for Joshua, a tree who has never seen another tree like him. He asks everyone in his environment to help him find a companion...but although the desert loves him, nobody can help. Things change for Joshua one beautiful spring night when a tiny moth comes to visit. This exquisite story about the life-cycle relationship between the Joshua Tree and the Pronuba Moth will delight readers of all ages.

About the Author:
Christina Steiner lives in Southern California. She is the mother of two daughters, who loved illustrated children's books when they were growing up. The Sad Tree and Pronuba was inspired by Christina's visit to the Mojave Desert, where she became fascinated by the Joshua Tree and the desolate environment in which it flourishes.

My Review:
 The story of The Sad Tree and Pronuba is such a sweet story of friendship that is perfect for children to see the true value in being kind to others. Joshua was a sad tree because he could never see any others exactly like him and this caused him to be very lonely. Pronuba is a sweet, little moth that helps Joshua because she is aware of the life-cycle relationship and knows that she holds the key to making this tree feel better by pollination. This is a great book to teach children kindness by helping our neighbors and by teaching them a little about life-cycles.

 This book is good for all ages and is available for purchase at this link.
