This is one of my favorite books of all time. When I was just a wee tot I made mother read it over and over. She soon memorized the entire book and still knows it today! I was published just a year after the book. :) in other words, she has a great memory.


A Timeless Tale

by read2me on Aug 30, 2007

I believe that nothing happens by accident. After searching for this book for twenty years, a copy finally landed in my hands. As the sun was setting over the tropical pacific island where I now live, I gently ran my hands over the cover and opened the book to read to my five year old daughter. What was it about this story that stuck in my mind and drove me to search for it all those years? What about that tree made me smile whenever I chanced to wander under a Weeping Willow tree? The answers were obvious, as I struggled to finish the story, my voice full of emotion. Miss Twiggly's Tree is an absolutely delightful tale of the frailty of the human spirit and the power of friendship, kindness, and forgiveness. Miss Twiggly is a shy woman who feels uncomfortable around other human beings, preferring the comfort of her animal friends. But when the weather turns decidedly dreadful, she summons up all the courage and determination from within and overcomes her shortcomings in order to help those around her to make it through the storm. The words are rhythmical and the pictures have a soft, dreamy, gentle quality about them. After finding the used copy, I realized that I had been searching for the wrong title all those years. I am sure that was no accident. It just took me twenty more years of life experience to gain a new appreciation for what Dorthea Warren Fox was trying to say all those years ago. The tale is simple, but the melding of life experience and the joys of sharing great literature with a loved one made it a great read.

I Love this story. They just don't write childrens books like this anymore. I have been looking for this book for years. I had it as a little girl and wanted it for my kids but was unable to find it until now. I was ecstatic when I searched Alibris and actually found, not one, but many copies. I, of course, HAD to have it. I will treasure it and now have it to read to my grandchildren since all of my kids are now grown and never got to benefit from it. I thank you so much for helping me bring back a very good memory from my childhood. I also found another from my childhood that I had forgotten about and it just came up on my recommendations. I again, of course, HAD to have it too. It is "How Fletcher Was Hatched" I will be writing its review next. Again, THANK YOU for putting a smile on my face and the memories that I can now share.
