Hannah and the Talking Tree review and giveaway

Children's environmental book teaches about the power of personal action Author and illustrator Elke Weiss has created a children's book specially designed to plant the seeds of environmental activism in the next generation.
Hannah is a little girl with a special and unique gift. She has very, very big ears which enable her to hear things in the world all around her that other people do not notice. She can hear the grass grow, the wind sing, and the ants march one by one. Unfortunately, she is teased and criticized by other children for her ears. In the forest she finds and befriends a very special and solitary tree and learns about the tragic fate of the trees around her. And now the last tree is threatened as well. Is there any way to save the lone tree from destruction? Will anyone listen to Hannah's cry for help? Instead of just giving up, Hannah decides to be brave and do something herself to help save the tree and create a world worthwhile living in.
Hannah and the Talking Tree’is a children s book specially designed to plant the seeds of environmental activism in the next generation. Printed on recycled paper. Gold Medal winner of the 2010 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. It was featured in the Washington Post and several parenting magazines.

This is a great children’s book! The artwork is  beautifully done and the story too cute! The pages are thick and glossy, printed on recycled paper.  A beautifully crafted book with a great story!   I always tell my kids, God gave them two ears to listen and only one mouth, so it is best to listen!  The same is true for Hannah, she was given tow big ears for a reason!  Hannah was picked on because of her large ears, but her ability to hear nature is a special gift and toward the end of the story,  others come to accept her differences.

I love how this story depicts  how being different is ok. Everyone is different and unique and that is okay!  I can not wait to check out the rest of the Hannah books!
