Picture Book Review: Terry Treetop Finds New Friends by Tali Carmi

Tree Top Terry Finds New FriendsTitle: Terry Treetop Finds New Friends

Everybody called him Terry Treetop because he loved climbing trees.

Terry was alone, so he went on a journey to find new friends to invite to his new tree house.

He almost gave-up when a new opportunity came his way.

Will Terry use this opportunity to find new friends?





I love the pictures in this children’s storybook. They are bright and colorful and I like Terry’s patched up pants and shirt. This is a cute story book and the text flows easily when read aloud. Terry does a heroic deed at the end winning him the friends he has been seeking.

The only reason I liked this book instead “loving” it was I thought that Terry could have made more of an effort from the very beginning to be a friend. He passes all these animals who are hard at work hoping one of them will come to his new tree house to play. Not once does he offer to help them which seemed like the logical way to make a new friend.

When reading picture books I prefer to have pictures on the screen at all times to hold children’s interest. All the pictures in this story are square and then the text appears below the picture. This works fine when there is limited text but there are several times when the amount of text if too long so it flows onto the next page leaving only a bunch of text to be read.
