"Under The Tree" by Danielle Leibovici, LMFT, is the story of a little boy who was lost. He woke up under a tree and wandered deeper into the forest searching for his home. The boy came upon a rabbit hole. The rabbit, owl and fox could not help him. The blue jay took the boy to the wise old squirrel. The squirrel showed the boy a bowl of magic water. When he looked inside the boy could see himself asleep under the tree. The water revealed things to the boy that helped him find his way home.

"Under The Tree" is an adorable book. Danielle Leibovici uses prose to deliver her message. Danielle Leibovici brings out the many emotions that children go through, and the disillusionment, distress, and the sorrow as the little boy searches for his home. The boy feels other emotions like happiness, relief and elation when the boy discovers he is no longer lost. When he returns home he rushes into his loving mother’s arms. The plot is delightful and well-written. The illustrations are bright and cheerful. Julia Gabrielov uses beautiful colors to complement the text. The greens used for the grass and trees are peaceful and calming. The rabbit is dressed in a blue vest with a pocket watch. The owl wears a scarf around his neck while the fox has a red cape. The wise squirrel has a walking stick and his home is beautifully decorated. All of the illustrations come together to help the child use his imagination. It is easy to recommend this book.
