A girl writes a poem to a tree, but then is surprised when the tree writes back in this wondrous and warm picture book about friendship, nature, and the power of poetry. The snow has melted, the buttercups are blooming, and Sylvia celebrates winter's end by writing a poem. She ties her poem to a birch tree, hoping that it doesn't count as littering if it makes the world more beautiful. But when she returns, a new poem is waiting for her. Could the tree really be writing back? Sylvia decides to test her theory, and so begins a heartwarming poetic correspondence...as well as an unexpected new friendship. Lyrical and sweetly satisfying, Poetree is about finding beauty in the world around you, and new friends in unlikely places.

“If you want to share a poem with me,
Give it to the tall birch tree.
Or if you need a friend for writing,
Playing with, or sit beside-ing,
I'll be here for you joyfully,
Right beneath the Poetree“.

This book contains various elements of poetry including the use of sound patterns and a sense of imagery in order to tell the story. The poems written both by Sylvia and Walt were filled with rhyming phrases that portrayed the world and nature around them during the season of spring. The poems focused on the readers sense of smell, sight, and sounds as they each created vivid imagery of what we experience during the spring season.
