Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"―people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with a crow named Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this wishtree watches over the neighborhood.
You might say Red has seen it all.
Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experience as a wishtree is more important than ever.
Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, this is Katherine Applegate at her very best―writing from the heart, and from a completely unexpected point of view. -Amazon
On Fridays, I post something I just think you will find fun. This week I have borrowed an idea from the website Engage Their Minds. She writes:
For today’s edition, I am sharing a cute website I came across called, “Picture This Clothing.” Similar to sites like “Imaginables” and “Doodle Your Toys,” which allow you to upload a drawing that can be turned into a stuffed animal, Picture This Clothing offers dresses that can be made based on your own artwork. All you need to do is download and print the template, color it, send a picture of the design, and order your custom dress.
Dress sizes on Picture This Clothing are children’s sizes 2-12. The dress will cost you $49, and you can also add on identical miniature dresses for dolls. According to the site, it will take 12-15 business days for you to receive your order.
For those of you with budding fashion designers in your household, this could be a fun way to channel their passion before you decide to purchase a sewing machine and let them loose in the fabric store to start creating their own creative wardrobes.
