A little dog dreams of all the things she would see and the creatures she might meet-- if only she could climb trees. On one beautiful blue-sky day, she imagines she's climbed to the top of a tall tree. Once there, she discovers what life is like for the other creatures in the tree and then comes to find that they also dream their own little dreams. Together they picture a world where bugs have shoes for their little feet; birds have paws to bury treats; and yes, even four-legged Nuggies can climb trees! Moving between day and night, If I Could Climb Trees is a whimsical bedtime story that encourages children to explore their imaginations, dream bigger dreams, and see the world through the eyes of others.
"This fifth title in the Nuggies series is about seeing life through another’s eyes and dreaming of new experiences. Coco may never climb a tree but he can still dream of seeing clouds in the mountaintops, soft as pillows, from the top of a tree. The point is to keep dreaming. The impossible might prove possible with the right dreams. Kids can do the same through imagination and creativity. Most importantly, children should never stop dreaming and reaching for pillowy clouds."
"Garcia’s illustrations are almost huggable in their cuteness"
"This book is highly recommended for the young reader who enjoys animals and reading about how animals live. Young readers who are beginning to learn about the power of imagination will find this to be a lovely and warm story that will likely be re-read many times over."
