A little girl loves gumdrops so much that she plants them in hopes of growing a gumdrop tree. Colors, shapes, and patterns are some early literacy concepts that sneak into this story. Illustrations were rendered using airbrushed acrylic which gives the artwork a futuristic look for me. PreK-2.

My daughter loved this book. Of course now she wants a gumdrop tree of her own. The simple formula with this book is ideal. Repetition, visually stimulating art, and pre-primers/primers + make this an excellent read.

I secured this title from my local library.

A girl with BIG dreams eventually gets what she wants........with a little help from her parents. The last page shows that parents will do anything for their children.
