Hannah and the Talking Tree Book Review

About Hannah and the Talking Tree:
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 has been featured in the Washington Post as well as several parenting magazines and is the 2010 Winner of the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards.. And I can see why! My boys loved Hannah and the Talking Tree so much that not 5 seconds after my husband read it to them, they brought it to me and asked me to read it again.

The book is printed on recycled paper and seems to be very durable. The illustrations and story line are just amazing! Hannah and the Talking Tree is the first of several Hannah books including Hannah's Animal ABC coloring book which is also available now and Hannah Becomes a Mermaid which will be available in 2012.
