This book is about a man that sitting comfortably in his house. While he sits he is thinking that something is not right. Therefore he try to figure out what is that thing. He realizes that the tree outside standing alone. He tries to help the tree by bringing it inside. It causes disaster. After somehow making the life back to normal, he again thinks something is not right!! This time he wants to help the cow which is standing outside.
It is a cute story. I liked the illustrations. I think they add a lot to the text. I like the face of the main character and the way he dresses. It exactly transfers the message of what kind of personality the main character has. The story by itself is also well done. It has a message that everything has its own place and we should not try to change that, like bringing a tree into the house.

Colorful book that children would find silly. I picked this book because i thought it might have something to do with trees or nature, well this book really doesn't have that. Its a book about enjoying the simple things in life ( )

This was a very colorful book with a simple plot and light humor. Adults will enjoy reading this to children as much as children will enjoy hearing it read to them. While nature is part of the plot, you will not find anything to do with environmentalism or climate change in this wonderful book. It's merely about enjoying tea in the evening and wanting to share that experience with the dog, and maybe others. I also recommend this book to children who cannot read well but who like to pretend to read to themselves. It is easy to turn the pages and let the child narrate the story without reading all the words. The illustrations narrate the story well. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006028241X, Hardcover)

Mr. Potter lives all alone in his little house. And outside is a little yard with just enough room for one little tree. In fact, it’s such a fine tree that good-hearted Mr. Potter feels bad that it stands there all alone in the yard while he stays warm by the fire inside the house. It doesn’t seem right that the tree is never invited in. And so he decides to do just that. But what will happen when the tree grows and grows and grows—and his little house stays exactly the same size?

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:01:57 -0400)

When Mr. Potter decides to bring both his dog and a tree inside to share his cozy house, there are unexpected repercussions.
