I did not usher my opinion of the video, but waited too see what Little T thought. He did quite a bit of thinking and we ended up talking about it for days. He was sad for the tree and upset at the greedy boy. He also developed a sense of disbelief and respect for the tree. Can a tree be a hero? There were some interesting questions twirling and whirring in his mind. One thing was for sure, the character traits of the tree proved to be valuable to my 7 year old.
This video has inspired us to make our own tree in our school room...stay tuned!
