The Tiniest Tumbleweed - Kathy Peach,Alex Lopez

Baby Tumbleweed and Little Sparrow are small when they are born. Their fathers are not sure if the babies will grow up to be big and strong. Their mothers reassure them all that they will grow. Tiny Tumbleweed grows and roots herself. She's not as big as her brothers and sisters but she's okay. Little Sparrow also grows, just not as big as his siblings, but his father teaches him how to strengthen his wings and legs. One day he is out when a storm arrives. He sees Tiny Tumbleweed below him. Can he make it to her for shelter before the storm hurts him? Can she help him?


I liked this story. I loved the illustrations. They are gorgeous. I liked that Tiny Tumbleweed and Little Sparrow both grew up under similar circumstances. I also appreciated that they were able to do what they needed to do.


I liked the fun facts about tumbleweeds and sparrows at the end of the book as well as the questions about the book. This is good for toddlers and early readers. It is designed for third graders but your 4-8 year old will enjoy it.

The Tumbleweed DIY Book...
The Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds and Tiny Houses: Build your own guest cottage, writing studio, home office, craft workshop, or personal retreat - Jay Shafer

This is a great book to read if you're serious about building your own tiny house. It has a lot of floor plans and great photos with design ideas. Some of the houses are on trailers, but some are on foundations. I love how this book gives you options. It has a lot of instructions on how to build a tiny house. It covers clearing the building site, safety gear, cutting down trees, removing logs, stumps and roots, building the foundation on poles, roofing, raising walls, siding, windows, doors and trim. I had no idea how to cut down a tree or remove a stump until I read this book. It doesn't cover plumbing, electrical or finishing the interior, so you'll need separate books for that. I'd still recommend this book to anyone researching tiny houses.

Tumbleweed Christmas
Tumbleweed Christmas - Beverly Stowe McClure,Bridgett McKenna Jackie's family has no money for a Christmas tree or presents, and her father is sick in hospital. So Jackie sets out to buy a Christmas tree for her family with her last dollar, promising her little sisters, April and May, a surprise. She meets up with her friend Daniel who is having troubles of his own. Jackie's mother has told her that Christmas is the season of miracles. Will Jackie and Daniel get their miracles this Christmas?

Illustrated by Bridget McKenna, "Tumbleweed Christmas" is a beautiful, heart-warming story about the belief in miracles, the love of family, and acts of selflessness. Although stated to be suitable for children aged 3-7, in my opinion it is suitable for older children as it deals with some harsh realities of life. Younger children may question the absence of Santa in this story.

I received this book for the purpose of providing an honest review.
