Balloon Trees, by Danna Smith, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

The book Balloon Trees, written by Danna Smith and Illustrated by Laurie Allen Klein, answers the question: 'Where do balloons come from?'

For the inquisitive child, Author Danna Smith has hit on a curiosity quenching literary treat.  This book will delight young children who are fascinated by the concept of where things come from and how they are made.  Told in rhyme, the story begins in a rubber tree plantation where a tree is tapped for sap.  Illustrator, Laurie Allen Klein playfully incorporates the aid of a small bird which tags along as the story progresses from forest to factory and beyond.

This book is highly recommended as a teaching aid and for school and home libraries.  Balloon Trees, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
