This book is about compassion and caring. Maya Papaya worries about her apple tree’ she loves so much, because of its falling leaves. After the snow, when the leaves came out again, she was told by her parents, about the nature of the fall season, when the trees lose their leaves. There is a lot to learn from nature. I loved the detailed illustrations – especially Maya’s. I loved the detailed illustrations – especially Maya’s

Trees are some of the most beautiful things in the world. In the summer and fall they bear fruit or flowers or pretty leaves. In some parts of the world, trees turn gold, orange and red in the Fall. Many people travel to see the beautiful trees.

The author, Denise D. Sharon, has written a lovely story about Maya Papaya, who was a happy little girl. She loved her garden, and the beautiful flowers and trees in her garden. One day when the air was becoming colder, Maya put on her jacket and went to visit her garden. Something did not seem right. She looked around and noticed leaves all over the ground. She was heartsick, she thought her lovely apple tree was ill. She did everything she could, to make the apple tree better. When you read this book, you will discover what happened to Maya and her apple tree. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will wonder like Maya, what was wrong with the apple tree.

The illustrations by Fatima Stamato, are bright and colorful. The illustrations depict the events of the apple tree and Maya and her parents. One of the best parts of this book is that there is a lesson to be learned. For children and adults, it is important to learn from lessons, and reading may be the best way to learn. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

Leaving aside that one of my favorite activities with my children is reading bedtime stories for them, I really enjoy children’s books as they take me back to a time of innocence and discovery in my life, a time that clearly defined the person I am today. I have really enjoyed this book for its educational nature, and for the fact that it follows a simple story that is real and does not touch base with fantasy or sci-fi elements – things that I see very often lately in children’s books. Maya’s story is one of my favorite bedtime readings for my boys, and their smiles before going to sleep convinced me that it is among their favorite ones too.

This is a charming children’s book, clear and easy to read. The story shows how changes in nature can be seen through the eyes of a child.
The lovely illustrations reflect the spirit of the story.
Especially, I liked the last part of the book with a lovely lesson learned.

As an educator this is a fabulous book for little ones to read. It shows children that no matter what happens you can always go to your parents. This book should be in the childcare centers in their Fall curriculum.
