      I decided to read all seven of the books Maria Popova on twitter says were the loveliest picture books of 2017 brainpickings 2017 12This is the fifth of seven, Bertolt funny that as a literary type guy, I would think it might be about Bertolt Brecht wrong It is a book about an imaginative which is not to say imaginary, though this is fiction boy whose best friend is an old at least 172 years old oak tree named Bertolt It s a book about a solitary kid, and his imagination obviously , the construc [...]

      I m slowly making my way through The 7 Loveliest Children s Books of 2017 as selected by brainpickings You can see the list here brainpickings 2017 12This is the second picture book on the list that I ve read and it s simply lovely It s not often that I see stories about kids who like to be alone and enjoy their own company, so this was a delight This is the story about a little boy and a tree he named Bertolt The art is sketchy and cute, and I was was amused and touched by the antics of the kid [...]

      Huh That was the exact thing I said when I realized the last page was indeed the last page I had to check, make sure Huh.I loved the idea of a hero in a children s book who embraces loves living a daily solitary existence I appreciated the talent of the wispy, potentially expressive line art, even though it did nothing for me personally I loved the idea of watching the world, of matching value for the life of nature a tree to the life of things commonly valued people, pets But it just didn t do [...]

      Not very often does a book manage to pull off being charming This book was sweet, smart, funny and charmed me into loving not only the book as a whole, but also into wishing that the main character was a serialized cartoon and could have adventures A book I read in a sitting and handed directly to my eleven year old.

      What a sweet tale about a kid who plays alone, and likes it that way Brilliant book for the loners who might not know it s okay to play alone It s also a poignant story about loss, and how we cope Awesome book.

    6. Lori on said:

      This surprised me The illustrations are really great The story is sweet Kindness Individuality Loss So much all wrapped into one.

      Quirky and literally colorful Breezes by tough problems with calm defiant buoyancy.

    8. Meredith on said:

      Some real winners in the village Maybe their behavior inspired the boy to become a thief at the end Also, do his parents know that he is hanging out in a tree during storms I know this book is supposed to be a quiet philosophical inspirational thing, but it made me cranky.Finally, note to the proofreaders the font changes on the page that says I know what to do when a cat or a bird dies But what should I do for Bertolt

      A quiet story to share with introverts in your classroom Lovely, soft illustrations Would pair well with Wishtree or Sequoia.

      A cute story about a boy who likes to be on his own and the tree he loves to climb Beautiful, simply yet effectively coloured illustrations Charming

    11. David Goetz on said:

      Basically, an introverted boy loves an old oak tree, but the tree dies.The boy says, when you re different, people can laugh at you, or even worse I wish the author had avoided this part the description depiction of the boy as introverted effectively normalizes introversion, but the comments about it promote the common us them mentality with respect to intro extraversion In short, it will only make introverted readers self conscious about their introvertedness, which will lead to shame or a sens [...]

      In life, you don t need a lot of friends You only need one good friend who is by your side, day after day, through thick and thin For one little boy, that best friend is Bertolt The book is charming, and the simple illustrative style embodies the innocence of the story The narration is in first person, which makes it so heartwarming and does a beautiful job in tugging at your heartstrings What s incredible about this book is that even in it s simplicity it manages to pack in an abundance of them [...]

      This is the story of a boy and his best friend, a tree named Bertolt The boy loves climbing Bertolt s branches, hiding in the leaves, and looking out over the town After Bertolt loses its leaves in the fall, the boy anxiously awaits the return of the leaves so he can climb again But Bertolt s leaves do not return.I enjoyed the illustrations in this book than the story, but the story was good Not great, just good I liked the beginning, didn t like the middle, but loved the ending.

    14. Diane on said:

      But me I m what you call a loner I do stuff by myself, and it doesn t bother me one bit Just the opposite Bertolt is a very big, very old tree that the main character loves to climb He can hide among the leaves and see everyone else, though they can t see him He can see for miles around He makes friends with the squirrels, birds and even the bees But when all the other trees have started to get their leaves, Bertolt remains bare The boy knows that Bertolt is dead and he must do something before [...]

      Bertolt, an old old tree, is one little boy s best friend He has the best time playing among the branches in spring When spring comes around again, however, he discovers Bertolt has died How can he honor his beloved friend This is such a sweet story It deals with emotions, being a little different from others, death and loss, as well as friendship The illustrations are lovely pencil sketch with minimal color Recommended for kids over the age of five because it has a lot of pages, almost like a c [...]

      I love this book My daughter s Meemaw sent it as a gift when our younger turned 1, and our older almost three has not gone than a few hours without requesting it The pictures are engaging and the story addresses two difficult topics being different and death in ways that a pre schooler can understand and doesn t scare them My daughter is a kid who loves her space, and this book is giving her language to talk about that We also have not talked about death at all, and the story line lays it out i [...]

    17. J David on said:

      Bertolt is a lovely book for children with beautiful sensitive illustrations The author is Jacques Goldstyn a French Canadian from Montreal It is the story of a little boy who is a happy loner He is aware of various groups be they playing games or knitting with other ladies But he wants to do his own thing and do it alone It would be wonderful reading for a child who is a loner who can see the rewards that come with his choices It has a cute, clever and imaginative ending I highly recommend this [...]

      A boy embraces his introversion and spends much time in an oak tree he names Bertolt.From there, he views the world in all seasons.Unfortunately, one spring, Bertolt does not bring forth new leaves He has died.It s a nice point about how knowing about the death was not a sudden thing, but gradual.

    19. Kate on said:

      A sweet story of a boy who loves an old oak tree that he has named Bertolt and is saddened in the spring when it is clear the tree has died You can t bury a tree but how do you save it from becoming firewood The pencil artwork is soft with spots of color Love the boy s acorn style hat which goes with his love for an oak tree My favorite spread is that of the boy in the tree, never alone since there are squirrels, an owl and other birds, cicadas.

    20. Mary on said:

      Delicate cartoonish drawings illustrate the bittersweet story of a boy who loves an ancient oak tree He names the tree Bertolt Bertolt is the center of the boy s childhood activities Then one spring Bertolt does not produce any leaves and the boy realizes the tree has died He finds a fitting way to memorialize this dear and important of his life.

    21. Lynn on said:

      Although it probably won t work as a group read aloud due to the small size and tiny details in the illustrations, but, for those youngsters who are loners, yeah Too many times we make introverts think there is something wrong with them and that they, need to play with others This book will encourage even extroverts to try some time alone, enjoying nature

    22. Kimberlee on said:

      I love the soft progression of the story here, but there was just something missing The main character is different than what we usually see in books of all types He is different, introspective, solitary, and whimsical, but he embraces it even when others ridicule him for it 3 5 stars

    23. CharityJ on said:

      This little book got me The delicate pen drawn illustrations, the way the boy feels about the tree is tender and sweet It feels like there s story than just what s on the page A great book to share.

    24. Erin on said:

      I was really loving the book but a few things really put me off the picture of the couple making out, the picture of the cat runover on the road, the picture of the postman putting down a trap for the rabbits Otherwise, charming.

    25. Jen on said:

      There s such poignancy in this story And so many extraordinary details from cicadas whose songs are 100 decibels to I know what to do when a cat or a bird dies But what should I do for Bertolt

    26. John Millard on said:

      A friend loaned this to my 9 year old so I read it What a delightful book with wonderfully night and vivid drawings.

    27. Mary Lee on said:

      Love song to a beloved tree Also, a book about being okay with being different.

    28. Erin on said:

      A light, gentle story about friendship, alone ness, and death that ends like leaves falling and blowing away.
