This is a very different story. It is full of fairly random descriptive words that tell you about Loblollies. What are Loblollies? I had to look them up because this book never technically tells you (although you will probably figure it out after 15+ pages of pine trees).
The pictures in Loblolly, Loblolly, You’re So Tall are very pretty and well-done. The story itself is poetic without rhyme. It shows that trees are tall, are flexible, grow in groups, have needles, house birds, look like cotton candy or giant bottle brushes, and sway in the wind.
If your kids are big fans of trees, they might really enjoy this tale. I just found it a little odd, myself. “Pinecones. Little works of art. Prickly… Similar to pineapples.”
