The Fruit Tree

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This is a very short story, or perhaps more a fable, designed especially for school aged children dealing with bullies and learning about responsibility. This short story has a moral, or perhaps is moral, something not found often. This entertaining piece may be just what the doctor ordered.

I enjoyed reading this story with my 2 boys, who are going through bullying at school. I found it to be a wonderful lesson, and was able to use the story as a good starting point for a discussion on why fighting is not neccessarily a good option to resolve issues.
Technically, I do think the book could be improved and polished a bit by good editing, although I would not make the story too long, as you need to take the age it is written for into account.

I gave this story a lot of thought before writing this review. I decided that this story does not reach its potential. The fruit tree fable part of the story sounds pretty good, but is lacking. There are some things alluded to, lightly touched upon, which if examined deeper, could really pay off. I think there is a lot of potential in this story, but it remains untapped.
