    1. This is a wordless picture book by a father/daughter team who have created a magical immersive experience. A polar bear swims towards a tree house that stands alone in the water. Later, a brown bear arrives in a boat. The two bears stay together in the tree house, reading books as the sea below turns pink with a flock of flamingos. As the flamingos pass, more animals arrive, including a rhino who bashes the trunk of the tree, two pandas, some owls, a hippo, and a peacock. Another bear arrives vi [...]

    2. Um, ok. Pretty, but no drama or development, not a fable or an adventure, barely an experience. At first I thought it was going to be like *The Mitten* but no. And when the rhinoceros butted the trunk I almost got a headache from the visual effect. I opine that this is just a Trip, and would maybe work better as a Triptych on the child's bedroom wall. ;)Pretentiously oversize, too, which is annoying for libraries and home shelves. So, another star off for book design.

    3. I've been on a picture book kick lately. The kind of kick that has me finding new and improved ways of hiding exactly how much money I spend on books from my spouse. As a result of yesterday's buying spree, I have an armful of really awesome books for the kids. But in a stack of fun picture books, The Tree House was the clear winner. I had found the book on a remainder table, and for only the second time in my long remainder-table-buying career, I found myself feeling a tad guilty for the steal [...]

    4. Zeggen dat ik dit boek gelezen heb, kan ik eigenlijk niet. Prentenboeken zonder tekst zijn vaak toch bijzondere boeken. Ik merk dat ik altijd zelf probeer een verhaal te verzinnen bij zo'n boek en dat was ook nu het geval. Ik merk wel dat ik bij een boek zonder tekst nog beter naar de afbeeldingen kijk en wat heb ik daar bij dit boek van genoten. Wat is de boom met boomhut bijzonder mooi getekend en wat is het leuk om op iedere bladzijde op zoek te gaan naar wat er anders is. Mijn favoriete pren [...]

    5. Illustrator: Marije Tolman and Ronald TolmanPublisher: LemniscaatYear: 2009Interest level: K-2Reading Level: anyone (wordless book)The Tree House won the Bologna Ragazzi fiction award in 2010, a prestegious illustration award. It also won the United States Board of Books for Young People 2011 Outstanding International Book for the age group of K-2. The father-daughter team from Netherlands created a very imaginative book. It is an oversized wordless book that has a brief summary written on the i [...]

    6. This wordless picture book from the Netherlands was the 2010 Winner of the Bologna Ragazzi Award, which honors graphic and editorial design. In what looks like crayon, watercolor, and colored pencil, father -and- daughter team Marije and Ronald Tolman portray the lovely lives of two bears on a treehouse floating in water. The initial construct of the house and the quiet mood are reminiscent of the 2009 Oscar-winning animated short La Maison en Petits Cubes. Only, instead of the waters rising, th [...]

    7. I loved this book! This wordless picture book is wonderful, with lots of subtle details for young children to discover. Father -and- daughter team Marije and Ronald Tolman (Netherlands) teamed up to create this book, which was the 2010 Winner of the Bologna Ragazzi Award, which honors graphic and editorial design. In what looks like crayon, watercolor, and colored pencil, the story covers full double-page spreads portraying the lives of a polar bear and a brown bear on a treehouse floating in wa [...]

    8. I always find it fascinating to watch children deal with books without words. Children are challenged to look carefully at the pictures and to make their own interpretation of what the story is about. With beautiful drawings, “The Tree House” depicts all kinds of animals–-panda bears, flamingos, a rhino and a hippo--gathering in a tree house and then leaving it. Open to many interpretations and that is part of the fun and the challenge for the children. Best used with children with advance [...]

    9. This is a magical and eccentric world-less book. A polar bear find a giant treehouse. A brown bear comes right behind him and finds the treehouse too. Then more and more friends/animals consisting of flamingos, rhinos and a peacock, find the treehouse and join the two bears. Suddenly, another bear comes and all the animals follow him somewhere else. Leaving,only to two original bears. I really loved the bold and colorful illustrations in this book. However, I did not pick up on the actual plot o [...]

    10. Beautifully illustrated book, not a clear story line, but because this book is wordless. It provides readers an experience of retellling the story in many different ways. The number of creatures included in this book and the format of the book provided readers an immersive experience. The illustrator sure need more practice on the skills. Curious what kids gonna think of this book

    11. It was interesting that the cover of the book is essentially the first page of the book. I wouldn't have known that if I hadn't read the flap of the jacket cover.

    12. WORDLESSTolman, Marije; Tolman, Ronald. The Tree House. Pennsylvania: Lemniscaat. 2010.Target Audience: Toddlers to Grade OneThis wordless book is very entertaining and the story can be interpreted in many different ways. It would be a great book to read to young children again and again and change the story a little bit or drastically. The pictures have a European flair because the author and illustrator are Dutch. I think kids would love that the characters are all animals and the tree house i [...]

    13. The Tree House is a marvelous addition to this list. Like the books listed above, it features art executed with a confident, sure hand. The Tolmans aren't afraid of empty space or repeated scenes. A tree house, in a big tree sticking up out of the ocean, is visited by a polar bear and a brown bear. They explore the tree house, eat lunch, read books, watch clouds, make friends with other animals, and dream the afternoon away. It is delightful. Leisurely. Imaginative. It doesn't spell things out f [...]

    14. Gekocht bij een kleine boekenwinkel voor de helft van de prijs, tja dat kan ik niet laten liggen dan, en ik had al gehoord dat het boek goed was en al stukjes gelezen.Dit boek heeft geen woorden, geen tekst, maar de platen die erin staan vertellen meer dan genoeg verhaal. Het gaat over 1 beer die op een soort boomhut stuit (die wat ik kan zien in het water staat), al snel volgen er verschillende andere dieren op deze beer en komen ze allen leven in de boomhut.De platen zijn echt wonderschoon, pr [...]

    15. Naar dit boek moest ik even zoeken, aangezien het niet meer in onze bibliotheek is.Ik vind de voorkant van het boek prachtig. Toen ik het boek open deed, merkte ik, dat het boek dus zonder tekst is. Het is een vrij groot boek, dus de platen zijn ook erg royaal. Er is genoeg te zien op de platen.Een ijsbeer ontdekt een boomhut en wordt al snel vrienden met een bruine beer. Daarna wordt het steeds drukker en drukker in de hut, omdat er veel dieren komen 'aanwaaien'. Uiteindelijk vertrekt ook ieder [...]

    16. What a great wordless picture book! An over-sized picture book, published in the Netherlands & winner of the Bologna Ragazzi fiction award in 2010 (an award given at the Bologna Book Fair for superb graphic & editorial design), I grabbed this during our weekly trip to my library for summer reading.Magical, whimsical, and pure fun! Have your kid tell the story according to the pictures, and enjoy the ride!

    17. My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. Who can blame him? There are a polar bear and a whale on the cover. This book is weird and wonderful. It is strange and magical. It tells a story in pictures, but it doesn't tell the full story, and those gaps leave much to the imagination. This book is also just plain beautiful. Actual rating: 4.5 stars, but I round up.

    18. This is another darling wordless picture book that tells (or shows!) the story of two bears and their adventures in a tree house. They read books and the world inside comes to life around them. Very sweet and could really work for a range of ages, especially for a whole book approach to storytimes and read alouds.

    19. A tree house comes imaginatively alive in this wordless picture book. I giggled when I saw how the illustrations 'adjusted' to the introduction of the rhino. I smiled at the image of the two bears with their noses buried in their books and an unsuspecting onslaught of flamingos awaiting them. And I closed the book with an open heart to enjoying the view around me.

    20. This wordless picturebook has colorful and dynamic full page illustrations. While some of the animals are awkward, they are much better than those in her other book Jumping Penguins. ANd overall this is a mood piece of gathering and friendship.

    21. This is a wordless picture book. It is about a brown bear and a polar bear who live in a tree house. Eventually several more animals come to live with them. Then the other animals leave and the brown bear and the polar bear are left at the tree house. I really enjoyed the pictures in this one.

    22. As the days go by and the seasons change, the polar bear, and the grizzly bear meet new friends, have fun, and share a common experience, all while remaining at this tree house they happened upon. As there are no words it is up to your imagination to be able to join in their beautifully drawn world, and their experience.

    23. This book is beautiful and inspiring. Wordless children's books are becoming more popular and higher quality. I highly recommend adding this book to your library--it's appealing to all ages, and the illustrations are beautiful enough that I would hang a print of them on my walls.

    24. Gorgeous! Stunning art, with lots of subtle details for young children to discover. A great wordless picture book that could encourage children to make up their own stories, with the possibility of having different interpretations every time. Wonderful book.

    25. This wordless book about two bears who take up residence in a treehouse and enjoy the sights of the world around them invites readers to make up their own stories about the bears, the other animals they meet, and their marvelous treehouse home.
