Lots of little details to talk about/point out.

“Here is the boy up in the tree / where he built a house overlooking the sea. Yes, this is the tree house that Jack built.”

With swings, ladders, doors, turrets, vines and pulleys everywhere in his magnificent new tree house, Jack is soon joined by a variety of creatures which climb, jump, hide, play and chase each other. Everyone is having fun: the lizard, parrot, dog, cat, squirrels, monkeys, and even the buzzing fly.

Then a bell rings.

What is it for? Where are all the animals going?

Could it be story time? Yes, it is!

Later, the sun sets and stars appear in the sky. The tree house is silent. “The night has grown deep. Now Jack and his kitty are fast asleep. Good night to the tree house that Jack built!”

With its peaceful ending to a very busy, noisy day and its vibrant, colourful illustrations, this story – a fun retelling of a traditional cumulative tale – would be a perfect bedtime story for preschoolers.
