    1 thought on “Thea's Tree

    1. I really should set up a Good Reads account for my daughter and help her write reviews of her books! This is one she cannot get enough of. We borrowed it from the library and I've already read it countless times to her and she's still not quite ready to return it. Thea's tree is actually a giant beanstalk and the story is told completely through letters as Thea tries to find out exactly what plant she planted for her science experiment. She contacts a botanist and curator and a zoologist, among [...]

    2. In this book, told entirely through letters, Thea asks local experts to explain the tree that is growing from little purple seeds she is growing for a science report. None of the experts can help. All she needs is someone who knows the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.Very well done--cute, humerous. Great illustrations.

    3. How long will it take older kids to figure out what's going on here? Hopefully, they will catch on quickly. And if not, hurry and find a copy of "Jack and the Beanstalk"!

    4. Thea's Tree is about a young girl in Topeka, Kansas who is designing an experiment for her science class. She decides to plant an unusual purple beans in her backyard and records her observations. The bean sprouts and grows to unimaginable heights, leaves odd things on the ground, and produces seemingly magical things. Through a series of letters, Thea reaches out to a wide range of "experts" that don't take her inquiries regarding the magical plant seriously. This book would be a great read alo [...]

    5. This is a fun story about a science project gone crazy. A little girl named Thea plants an unusual seed for her project and it grows into the beanstalk from the classic tale featuring Jack. The tale is told through correspondence between Thea and a group of different experts as well as in the illustrations, which complement the story nicely. It reminds us of the story Plantzilla and Plantzilla Goes to Camp by Jerdine Nolen Harold. We enjoyed reading this story together.

    6. --grades 3-5--Thea decides to do a science project about growing a plant.--She observes and measures her findings and writes to experts to see if they know what kind of plant it is.--The experts speculate, but refer her to other experts when they are stumped.--The ground bubbles when the seed is placed in the soil. It grows ten feet around in 9 days. In less than 2 weeks the vine is so tall it surpasses the height of the house and Thea needs binoculars to see the top. A nest appears and a golden [...]

    7. Written in letter style to various specialists, budding scientist Thea shares her observations of a seed/plant she is growing with a variety of scientists and gets all sorts of feedback about what type of plant it is and what could be happening to the plant based on Thea’s descriptions and the field of study in which the expert is involved. Meanwhile, reader’s can see what’s really happening. Do you recognize this story?Great for fun or to introduce the scientific method or letter writing. [...]

    8. Told mostly through letters, this is the story of a girl who plants a purple seed for a science project. As the plant begins to grow rapidly, Thea contacts experts for help, but no one seems to know what type of plant she is growing in her yard.Clues in the illustrations will help students figure out what the experts can't.I know teachers are always looking for picture books that are epistolary. This one seems to fit the bill.

    9. I love the way that this book plays on a classic fairy tale while also incorporating the scientific method and the use of inquiry. The writing style is perfectly suited for teaching persistence as well as showing different professionals that can aid you in learning more about a specific topic. Beautiful illustrations and detailed notes complement the plot to make for a sublime children's book.

    10. A delightful way of engaging fairy tale and myth into a present day setting. I loved the epistolary format, and the author showed shinning humor and wit in her back-and-forth between "experts" and the young child doing a science project. A great book for those who love fairy tales and want to relate them to our lives today.

    11. Thea’s Tree is the book of a science research project which turns into a spin-off of jack and the beanstalk. The book is brilliant because the text is written in letter form. This would be good to use in the classroom as context to introduce and teach how to properly write letters. Students could then write letters of their own as a response activity.

    12. Identifies various types of plantsGood "mystery" storyline"Jack and the Beanstalk:" Major renditionCharacters communicate through written lettersI could incorporate this into a science lesson about botany.

    13. This is a Jack & the Beanstalk kind of story, cleverly written in the form of letters sent by the girl who planted the bean to various experts in the fields of botany, zoology, and banking concerning the tree and the various objects that fall from it.

    14. Great book for inferring!! Thea plants a seed for her science project but this is no ordinary seed. Told through letters(great for writing), Thea is determined to figure out what she planted in her yard that is growing like crazy.

    15. An inventive fractured fairy tale based on Jack and The Beanstalk. This is a good picture book for school age kids.

    16. So enjoyable to read aloud! There's alliteration, a deep connection to another story and fantastic illustrations to carry you along Thea's letter writing journey.
