Book Review : Picture Book Tree

I feel extremely happy to be sharing the wonderful endeavour of a mother with all the readers.



PictureBookTree is a tree that grows picture books and story books for children.

Stories about caring, sharing, love, and growing up. Like any tree, it loves to share its fruit, asking for very little in return. This site, which is started by a mother, shares beautiful life messages in the form of colorfully illustrated story books. Books that in a very subtle way lead you to appreciate and love this beautiful life, value relationships, respect nature and the world we live in. This site is a gift of a parent to all parents.

PictureBookTree featured on 'This Kid Reviews Books'

Picture Book Tree is a great place for younger kids (Ages 4+) to read books online. You can also track what you read by organizing the books into a reading list and check which books you have already read.  The site is very easy to use and young kids should be able to navigate it with a little help from Moms or Dads. The stories tell about nice characters like Benji in Mr. Might Meets His Hero (my favorite).  The books have nice messages about things like how nice life is, being respectful, having good friends, and helping out. The illustrations are colorful and very nice to look at....Click here to read more.


I Love You Mommy Review on August 3, 2011

What is the bond that a mother shares with her children? It’s intangible, inexpressible yet something that defines their relationship for life. Pooja Sardana tackles this theme of love and responsibility in her simple yet profound picture book “I love You Mommy”.

Beautifully hand illustrated by Pooja herself, the book takes a normal day in the life of a mom and her son, to tell a complex story about the nature of love and the meaning of responsibility. A mother’s job is never easy. The bond that she shares with her child for nine months is never severed for the rest of her life. Mothers all around the world work selflessly day and night to give their kids the best they can. Whether it is working mothers or those who chose to stay at home, their lives are defined by their children.

Pooja, whose love for kids made her chose a career in education, was very aware of her responsibilities when she had Aman, “I wanted to teach him about all that is beautiful about life. There are so many adverse influences that children have today – from popular films to television and internet. I have seen children who are jaded so early in life and I wanted to ensure that Aman learns about the small joys of life. I looked for books that could help me but they were too few and far in between. That’s how I started making books for him about the small ways in which one can make such a difference in the world, starting with our immediate friends and family.”

Told from the perspective of the little kid, the book uses simple rhymes and repetition to tell a moving story about how the son realizes that love is also about caring and looking out for each other. This emotional book, written from the heart is bound to resonate with parents all around the world.
