Books While We Wait - March 2014 edition

As you know, we are buying a new children's book each month while we wait. Since the original post has gotten rather long to keep reposting, I'm trying something different.  I will still update the original list and have added a link near the header, but each month I will only post about the new book.  If you want to see the entire list, please feel free to click on the link and review the other ones :)

A Gift for Little Tree by Colleen D.C Marquez

This book is a parable about an apple tree that is unable to grow apples and through careful grafting by the gardener grows apples from the other trees.  It a beautiful and unique adoption story, different than any other we have.  The story is longer than many picture books though, likely for 5+ crowd.  My son enjoyed the story but didn't understand the meaning/symbolism.  He was glad the gardener took very good care of the apple tree and that it was no longer sad :)
