I did not like the book “the alphabet tree” by Leo Lionni. The plot was not really telling a story. Instead, it was teaching the reader that letters make up words, words make sentences, and those sentences can have meaning. Unless this book was used within a lesson plan about how words, or sentences were formed I would not suggest this book. Additionally, at the end the letters make the sentence “peace on earth and goodwill toward all men”, and then the caterpillar wants to bring this sentence to the President. I do not think that content makes sense with the story or would be appropriate for the readers of this book. There are two big ideas to this book. The first is the construction of sentences. The second is that you can make those sentences to express meaning.

A story about a tree that used to house words. It gives good information on how letters make words and words make sentences and sentences have meaning. Interesting concept and again not what I was expecting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679808353, Paperback)

When a fierce wind threatens to blow all the little letters out of the alphabet tree, they must band together in words—and then sentences—to create a message that's even stronger than the wind: peace on earth. With their newfound knowledge, there's nothing the letters can't do in this gentle parable about the power of the written word.

A strong wind blows most of the letters off the alphabet tree and those that remain hide among the branches. Then a bug and a caterpillar come along and teach them how to arrange themselves into words and sentences to form a special message.
