About Oliver's Tree:
Oliver's Tree is a charming story about three lovable best friends, Oliver the baby elephant, Lulu the owlet, and Charlie the bunny. These friends love to play outside together, but sometimes Oliver's size gets in the way. When Oliver can't climb a tree to find his friends during a game of hide-and-seek, he gets a little sad, so his friends come up with a plan to find the perfect tree to include Oliver in the game.
This adorable picture book from debut author and bestselling Etsy illustrator Kit Chase, highlights the power of friendship and the importance of patience, kindness and problem-solving. With warm and charming watercolor illustrations along with simple text, Oliver's Tree will delight children as they follow along with this charming story.
Oliver's Tree launched on March 20, 2014, and has already received a starred review from Kirkus and has charmed reviewers at Parents Magazine, Publisher's Weekly and School Library Journal.

I love this story and how the friends make sure they choose a game everyone can play! It is so important to teach our children this important lesson and Kit does it beautifully! Size does matter in certain circumstances but it should not stop children playing games with one another. With gentle, beautiful illustrations and important lessons of compassion, friendship, imagination, and best of all, inclusion, this storybook will delight us all. I look forward to reading another book by Kit Chase.
