More By I.C. Springman
Ages 3-8

This intricately illustrated picture book is sparse in words. It sends a message about consumerism without ever mentioning the environment or shopping or buying. It shows a bird gathering more and more things for the tree in which it lives until it is ENOUGH and then TOO MUCH! It starts to give away things until is goes back to being just right. Interesting and unique book.

Discussion seed: When does it become too much? What can we do when we have more than enough? Charity? Sharing? Being thankful for what we have and not always wanting more...
