Pablo’s Tree is an intergenerational story that follows young Pablo on his birthday. When Pablo was adopted, his abuelo planted a tree in the yard to commemorate the day. Each year on the anniversary of his adoption, Pablo is thrilled to see how his Lito has decorated the tree in his honor.
One year, Pablo’s tree was covered in steamers. Another year, it was decked out in paper lanterns. What will be on the tree this year?
Pablo’s Tree has a sweet message of familial love, belonging, tradition, and acceptance, and Pablo’s close relationship with his Lito is wonderful to see. In addition to a charming story, the illustrations are vivid, colorful paper collages that highlight the tale very well.
