Book review: Everything You Need for a Treehouse, by Carter Higgins, illustrated by Emily Hughes

Higgins, Carter. Illustrated by Emily Hughes. Everything You Need for a Treehouse. Chronicle Books, 2018. $17.99. ISBN 9781452142555. Unp. Ages 4-8. P7 Q9

This book is a lovely tribute to the joys and possibilities of childhood. It’s a beautifully written how-to guide to imagining the perfect treehouse. Any kind of house is possible. The book’s full-page illustrations share several detailed options, from a greenhouse treehouse to a tree-castle. Among the numerous possibilities, there are constants for building a treehouse—proper snacks and good friends.

Verdict: Any reader who appreciates treehouses, trees, or designing things would enjoy this book. It is a great addition to any public or school library.
