I originally wanted to review Terry Treetop Finds New Friends by Tali Carmi for my toddler. I found this review would be geared towards a different age level than I had originally intended.
From the sellers of Terry Treetop Finds New Friends by Tali Carmi:
How to win friends ?

This is a wonderful children’s book, about a boy named Terry, but….
Everybody called him Terry Treetop because he loved climbing trees.
Terry was alone, so he went on a journey to find new friends to invite to his new tree house.
He almost gave-up when a new opportunity came his way.
Will Terry use this opportunity to find new friends ?

How to give and get love.
The story is written for children ages 2 – 6
When I set out to review Terry Treetop Finds New Friends my intentions were for it to be solely for my toddler. What I quickly found was her inability to focus on a downloaded book on our Kindle or the Kindle Viewer on my phone was very limited. Her attention span on this e-book was only just a couple of minutes at a time.
I think 2-year-olds are able to focus more on actual books they can hold. They love being able to turn physical pages and stick with it a little longer. As she gets closer to 3 and 4 I think Terry Treetop Finds New Friends will be a perfect fit for her.
My 11-year-old wasn’t overly interested but he did enjoy reading this sweet story to his little sister. He took the time to encourage her to look at the pictures and explain the importance of friendship to her. He felt this was important since she’s beginning preschool soon 🙂
Surprisingly the children Terry Treetop Finds New Friends worked out best for was my newly 8-year-old and our 6-year-old neighbor. My son found the book to be simple but loved being able to read it on his Kindle and on my phone. The little neighbor girl found the book to be just right for her reading level. It wasn’t too easy for her and not too difficult either. I would definitely say the reading level is perfect for the average 6-year-old reading without help.
Our little neighbor friend was completely pulled into the escapades of Terry Treetop. She couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. You’ll have to get yourself a copy if you want to find out 😉
My 8-year-old really enjoyed the story. He said his favorite part was when “everyone worked together in the end”. I think the storyline is a very good lesson for kids of all ages. It encourages friendships, perseverance and to be kind to others.
I thought the Illustrations were very nice, my toddler was able to point things out and name them. She loved naming and pointing at the animals. The pictures are bright and inviting which was probably the best feature for my 2-year-old.
I love the way the E-book Terry Treetop Finds New Friends by Tali Carmi makes it so we can “carry” it wherever we go. Granted my toddler didn’t stay with the book long enough to finish it at one sitting, having it on hand was a great temporary distraction. There are many times where she will ask for it or click on it herself. Having it electronically makes it easy to have whenever she wants it.
Even though the reading level was not as high as my 8-year-old needs it was nice to see him sit with his sister and read with her. For him to sit and explain the plot line and ask her questions about Terry Treetop’s journey is really fun. My son loved pulling my daughter into Terry’s happy adventures.
