Reviews for Sees Behind Trees
RatingComments
5I love this book, and I'd give it my highest recommendation to parents who have kids who are visually impaired as I was, when I was a child. Those with clear vision can have no idea what it's like to see people and objects as blobs. So much is missed when we can't see the facial expressions of those we interact with. In my case, it made me withdrawn as a child. In this poignant story, "Walnut," who later becomes "See Behind Trees," is gently made to realize that he, too, is an integral part of his tribe, despite not seeing the way others see. But this is not a superficial treatment of the passage into manhood. There is sorrow and loss here, carefully but honestly presented. Sees Behind Trees and the other children's books by Dorris are wonderful books for parents to read aloud with their children, because they offer opportunities for many issues to be discussed openly. Beyond that, the writing is indeed lyrical, resonant, and beautiful. It gives children the opportunity to hear rich language used in an early age.
