|The Tree That Went Bald by Jean Jones
Vanity and a poor self –image may influence our perception of
others and ourselves. My aim through this book is to help
children understand that their bodies will go through changes,
which is a part of their growth process. A child may wish to "grow
up now" or "not at all." I encourage young readers to share their
feelings with an adult they can trust. A child is not meant to
handle things on their own.
Mr. Tree liked the way he was and did not want to change. He
tried everything to prevent himself from changing, but was
unsuccessful. After sharing his feelings with Mr. Bird, he
understood he was going through the seasons of his life.

The story emphasizes the effects bullying may have on children,
