Book Review: The Tree House

The Tree House picture book cover

The Tree House

by Marije and Ronald Tolman

It’s a special book that can hold a child’s attention without words. It’s special illustrations that can keep a child turning the pages, eager to see what happens next. The Tree House does both.

A large, wordless picture book, The Tree House is beautifully illustrated by Marije Tolman and her father Ronald. A polar bear and a tall tree join with other animals and together they make the tree the centrepiece for adventures only limited by the reader’s imagination.

Subtle details will hold interest and keep the ‘story’ ticking along, but little minds are full of wonder and children will easily create a tale to match what they’re seeing.
