I'm Up In a Tree book review and giveaway CLOSED



I have to admit, I'm a sucker for a rhyming book so this book had big points going in. The rhythm of this book makes it a fun read. But its the story that really makes it priceless. I don't want to ruin the story for anyone so you'll just have to trust me when I say it is a very sweet story with a great lesson for kids!! And you can view the whole story online here.

More about the Book (from the website)
Climbing a tree sounded like a great idea, but it turns out that getting down is much harder than climbing up! Perched on a branch high up in a tree, a young boy must decide whether to find a way to the ground by himself or wait for his dad. All kinds of animals, from bees to birds to cats, offer him advice on how to get down (Jump! Fly! Climb!), but it’s up to him to figure out if their advice is worth taking.

Told in a lyrical rhyming style and charmingly illustrated by the author, I’m Up in a Tree is a book for kids and their parents to enjoy together.


Meet Mark (from the website)
Mark Alden Johnson has been a writer at heart since a very young age. Even as a kid, he would invent imaginative stories and proudly present them to his parents – and anyone else he could find. Johnson started writing children’s stories just for his kids and their friends when they were young, but after he published his first book, Little Fish Lou (Outskirts Press), he knew writing was a passion he wanted to pursue. A native of northern Nevada, Johnson attended West Nevada College, where he took a wide variety of courses. Currently, he works for a local utility company in Dayton, Nev., where he lives with his wife and three kids.

You be the artist! Download and print out actual pages from "I'm Up In a Tree" to color in yourself.

Author, Mark Johnson has generously given me a second copy to giveaway to one lucky reader.
