Loblolly, Loblolly, you’re so tall is a book about the Loblolly trees that are native to the south-eastern USA. Living in the UK and having never heard of these trees before I found reviewing this book quite hard as my interest just wasn’t there.

The book features some amazing artwork and is written in a poetic form. I didn’t really see much of a story going on, more a collection of thoughts about what the trees look like. Whether that was them trying to

Nature is beautiful, magical and it’s our connection to it that makes life glorious. In Loblolly, Loblolly, You’re So Tall, Mommy Moo Moo peels back the curtain to reveal the child-like wonder of nature.

From the description of the trees to the wildlife it supports, the story unfolds in easy to read words with bold typeface. Poetic prose, while simple in nature, spoke to my soul. The illustrations, however, are what makes this such a work of art. Each page is illustrated with such detail, it alm

I received a copy of Loblolly, Loblolly, You're So Tall in exchange for a true and honest review. I give this children's novel 5/5 stars. The story is concise and well written. I am not an Arborist, so I had to look up what a Loblolly was, but that didn't take away from my score for the story. The drawings were so well drawn, and the best part of the book. The story was entertaining, and I would recommend the book to school teachers and little children. ...more

In this pure celebration of nature, Loblolly trees take center stage and introduce young listeners to them in a fascinating way.

Every page takes a beautifully done illustration and mixes it with a text nearing poetry. It's not written in rhyme but still takes on an almost musical flare. Loblolly trees cover each page, stretching majestically into the blue sky as various aspects about them are revealed. Sometimes, it's pure beauty. Others, there's a hint a humor and fun. There's even a bit of fan

This enchanting board book covers the loblolly pine which is native to the east coast of North America and is often known as an Indian, pair-coned, pine.

Reading this beautifully illustrated natural world storybook, where fairies dance among the flowers, makes one recognize now is a perfect time to get outside and enjoy a hike through trails where songbirds and small woodland mammals feed on the seeds of these citrus-scented pines.

As a mom and a teacher of young children, I've read a lot of children's books. I was so excited to receive a copy of Loblolly, Loblolly, You're So Tall. This little book enchanted me from the start. The pictures are so beautiful and remind me of beautiful paintings you'd find in a museum or hung on your wall. The lyrical rhymes do make the paintings come alive. Children will love the words and love finding the many animals and little fairies that are spread throughout the pages. I also love the ...more

I want to take a moment to thank Mommy Moo Moo's team of amazing helpers for mailing me a physical copy of her book, which I appreciate bey

Stunning Children's book

Mommy Moo Moo pens a stunning children's story in Loblolly, Loblolly, You’re So Tall. The story tells a story about the Loblolly pine trees. The story shares the beauty and majesty of these great pine trees, and is perfectly written in a prose that children, and adults alike will enjoy. "You live with lots of other loblollies, the more the merrier." I found the story and the trees themselves very enchanting. I look forward to reading more by this author.

I read this book to my nephew when he was six months old. He loves trees, and this book delivers on this topic with its ode to loblolly pine trees which reside within its beautifully illustrated pages. The text is minimal, and the tone is gentle, providing a relaxing read for very young readers.
