My rating: 5 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ Beloved was a little girl who lived in a house on the hill.
This book is adorable; both the story and the illustrations. I adored the sentiment of the love between the girl and her pepper tree. There was a realness of the innocence of childhood and the beauty of nature. It was a darling story to teach young kids to tend to nature and the abundance of the splendor that nature provides. I adored this book, cover to cover!
