Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree - Book Review


Join in on a trip around the world to climb the weirdest and most wonderful trees. It doesn’t matter if you are in Africa, America, Europe or Asia, the trees of the world offer wonderful adventures.

Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree: Exploring Trees Around the World by Durga Yael Bernhard, Author and Illustrator.

This delightful and colorful book, Just Like Me, Climbing a Tree: Exploring Trees Around the Worldtakes children of many countries up and down in the trees of their locale. Each double page spread poses a situation and question that relate directly to their lifestyle and the trees they have growing in their countries.

However, not just the tree and a child are depicted – you will see a young child in the mango tree, but also a picture of his home and several other people from this culture so you get a little glimpse into their lives. In California, you will see a young girl hanging upside down, like a bat in the Monterey Pine, but the pine is positioned near the ocean, and you can see the rocky shore. In China, you can see a young girl sitting in the shade of the Gingko tree, as she listens to the leaves and feels the changing of the weather. In the background you see a pagoda like structure. In Australia, children are climbing a Mulberry tree to get to a silky silkworm. In Southeastern United States you see a young boy nestled among the comforting old branches, and there is a beautiful plantation house in the distance. The children look just like you would imagine a child of that country would look, so there is a subtle lesson on multiculturalism.

The book offers descriptions of 12 distinctive trees from across the globe and the local children who climb them.

The trees and their locations in this book:
Cambodia – Weeping Fig
Mexico – Montezula Cypress
Guinea, West Africa – Mango
California – Monterey Pine
South Africa – Baobab
Hawaii – Lychee
Holland – Weeping Willow
Brazil – Kapok
Israel – Olive
China – Gingko
Australia – While Mulberry
Southeast United States – Southern Live Oak

Curious young minds will enjoy the detailed educational notes of each tree. Included in this section at the back of the book is the origin of the tree, and many fascinating facts.

The publisher’s website, www.wisdometalespress.com, offers free coloring pages and Discussion Guides for parents, teachers and librarians.
