Rodman, Mary Ann. Illustrated by Tatjana Mai-Wyss A Tree for Emmy Peachtree, 2009. $15.95. PICTURE BOOK - Language G, Sexual Content G, Violence G – Emmy loves all kinds of trees. But best of all, she loves the mimosa tree in her Gramma's pasture that is stubborn and strong and a little bit wild just like she is. For her birthday Emmy wants a mimosa tree of her own so she can play with the pink blossoms and swing on the low branches and shake its rattly seedpods. The problem comes when no one sells the wild trees. Emmy solves the problem in a sweetly illustrated story that extolls the beauty of the natural world as well as the spunky spirit of a stubborn little girl. Pre-K, EL (K-3) ELEMENTARY- ADIVSABLE.
