[from dust jacket of Our Tree Named Steve]
David Catrow is the illustrator of many books for children, including Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon, a Book Sense Best Book of the Year Finalist and winner of the Georgia Children's Picture Storybook Award; We the Kids, an illustrated version of the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States; and I Wanna Iguana. He lives in Ohio with his wife, Deborah, their two children, and their two dogs.

Críticas

With very few words (many of them prepositions), Catrow tells the story of a fly causing mayhem during a concert. The illustrations are gross and funny. This would be a great choice for a struggling reader because it's fun and simple. I imagine after a few paired readings many children will be able to memorize it and then read it fluidly.

I'm not a huge fan of Catrow's illustration style, but it's a cute story and kids will enjoy the humor.

This book is appropriate for all ages. It introduces the Preamble to the Constitution. The topic is a great to introduce a unit of study and discuss with students. This book can be an effective instrument in promoting critical thinking.
