Mary Ann Rodman, Tatjana Mai-Wyss. I declare, Emmy," said Gramma. That mimosa tree is a lot like you. Stubborn and strong and a little bit wild. She loves oak trees with acorns. She loves pine trees with cones, and willow trees with swishy branches. But best of all, Emmy loves the mimosa tree that grows in her grandmother's pasture. So when Emmy decides she wants a mimosa tree of her own for her birthday, she is dismayed to find that many garden stores only sell ornamental trees like plum or pear or tulip trees.

Valerie's voice is as sweet as honey. Alice is torn between standing up for Valerie and being popular with the in-crowd. It takes a tragedy for Alice to find the courage to act. A truly resonant story about racism and doing the right thing, based on the author's own experiences.

One of our favorite books! Touching that the little girl wants a tree and not a throw away toy and that she also has to learn patience of how long things take to grow. I also like that the tree is appreciated even though it isn't a typically desired for tree. I appreciate the touch of mixed media in the illustrations too. My own daughter (4), also a bit "stubborn and wild" has now asked for a tree for her birthday.

If you know how lovely Mimosa trees smell, this is a book for you. I bought this book for my granddaughter. It is a must-have to add to your collection of children's books.

My grandson borrowed this book from the library and liked it so much that I bought him his own copy. He thinks mimosa trees are
really beautiful and wants to plant one of this own. It kind of gets him into wanting to care for his own tree and take care of nature.

It reminds me of my childhood. When I lived in Brooklyn as child with my family my grandmother, she had a mimosa tree in the front on her unit. It is fun read for children and adults.

This sweet book is part book about trees and part book about a stubborn, spunky girl. Emmy falls in love with the mimosa tree at her grandmother’s house but when she tries to buy one she’s told they don’t sell them in garden stores. The mimosa is compared to flowers like dandelions that only grow in the wild.

I love that Emmy is portrayed as a real kid with big emotions but that she also overcomes her frustrations and solves her own problems.

Soft illustrations that evoke a sense of springtime make this a lovely well rounded book. A great read aloud for spring time.

In the world of children’s books there are many that talk about plants and things growing in spring time, but these so often focus on flowers or vegetables. Add this one to your spring repertoire to round out your collection.

*I received a copy to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

I love the artwork in this book and the message is outstanding. Emmy wants a mimosa tree like the one in her grandmother's yard and goes everywhere in search of one. She can not find a way to buy the tree but is finally able to obtain one. There is also the lesson in the book that when we want something ; sometimes it takes time and effort to get it. I have bought several copies of this book to donate to the local library, to give as gifts and to have in my personal library.

Pure fun! A Tree for Emmy brings back the thrill of being surrounded with things in nature when you are young, and it will definitely make you look twice at a Mimosa tree the next time its fuzzy pink blossoms catch your eye. Illustrator Tatjana Mai-Wyss certainly captures Emmy's spunky personality with her delightful illustrations. I especially got a kick out of Granny's glasses and Emmy's often flyaway and messy hair - real life, only better. A happy book that makes you smile from beginning to end.
Kids enjoyed it a lot.
