Comments Circles of Hope

  1. It is not easy to find children s books with an appealing and compellingly timely story This story is both beautiful and powerful Children reading or listening to the narrative would learn about the plights of other children in Haiti, and their struggle to cope with unique challenges After the January 12, 2010 earthquake these challenges have only grown worse, but, as this book tries to show, there is still hope.The story is about a boy named Facile whose father has taught him the value of trees [...]


  2. Facile wants to do something nice for his new baby sister He decides he should plant her a mango tree like his father planted for him, but Facile soon discovers it is very hard to get a tree to go on the hillside in Haiti He is about to give up, but he tries one time by building a circle of hope a circle of stones around the newest attempt.A cute story about perseverance and kindness, with a little bit of cultural and geographical info on Haiti mixed in The pictures are unique in style and brig [...]


  3. Circles of Hope was a beautifully written work about a little boy from Haiti who wanted to do something special for his baby sister I found this book to be both thoughtful and educational with regard to content The illustrations were colorful and did a wonderful job of depicting what this boy had to deal with as he sought to do something meaningful for someone he obviously cared a great deal about I loved the message of this book I appreciated the simplicity and the emotional tone offered by Wil [...]


  4. This is a very powerful and moving picture book about what it is like for a young Haitian boy who is trying to plant a tree as a gift to his new baby sister I wouldn t recommend it for very small children because I believe the themes in the book to be past their scope of knowledge but I did think that it would be good for older children and adults The simple charcoal illustrations really evoke a feeling of what Haiti must be like The pictures feel hot, dusty and simplistic I liked this book.


  5. This is a cute book about Haiti and Haitian culture, and I enjoyed the information in the back about the people trying to replant trees The illustrations are impressionistic, and I thought they were good and fit the book.


  6. Circles of Hope is a book about a young child planting a tree to honor his new baby sister From his determination in this culture of Haiti, the child plants his seed Children can learn from different cultures and about siblings.


  7. This story was challenging for me to read but a good storyteller would embrace the tale of Facile who plants a tree for his sister and perseveres despite many obstacles Bleak illustrations add to the feel of the story.
