Book Review: Terry the Treetop and the Lost Egg

Thanks to my Tomoson membership, I was recently given the opportunity to read Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg by Tali Carmi. It is a story of a young boy who finds a lost egg and we follow along his adventure in finding its home.

This story is wholesome and teaches to help those in need. It includes color illustrations and rhyming text very similar to a Dr. Seuss book.

The story is easy to read and kept my 2.5 year old's attention, however there were a few lines early in the story that had odd grammar and didn't roll off the tongue quite so well. The editor probably could have done a better job, but it isn't enough that it should deter you from purchasing the book yourself.

The illustrations are great and my daughter enjoyed pointing out the things in the pictures that she knew the words of. For example, a tree, a rock, a shell, a bird, etc.

About the Author:

Tali Carmi grew up in a small desert town. She loved for her parents to read to her and even memorized many of her favorite stories. The rhythm and rimes of the stories she loved even influenced her to write her own book of songs, the first of which she wrote at the tender age of 10. Wife, mother of three, CEO of a successful software company and business coach, she never lost the love of children's books and is now writes them again.
