Katherine Applegate: Drevo želja

7. stran

Knjige vseh žanrov izbirajo in prebirajo poslušalci. Zgodbe, vtise, razmišljanja in knjižne predloge zbiramo v nedeljski jutranji radijski knjižnici. Srčen mladinski roman za vse generacije, poln duhovitih domislic, bralca nevsiljivo popelje do razmisleka o pomembnosti sožitja med ljudmi kljub raznolikosti.Rdeči hrast šteje že 216 krogov letnic, je tihi opazovalec sveta, lahko bi povedal nešteto osupljivih zgodb. Ljudje mu pravijo Drevo želja. Zato, ker je davno nekoč osirotela irska mladenka nanj privezala košček blaga z željo, da bi imela nekoga, ki bi ga lahko ljubila in bi ljubil njo. Uresničilo se je, in od tedaj imajo ljudje navado, da ga enkrat na leto ovesijo s svojimi željami. A idilično ravnovesje med častitljivim drevesom in njegovo okolico je povsem nepričakovano postavljeno na preizkušnjo. Bodo modrost, strpnost, sožitje in veselje do življenja premagali zlovešče namene in slaba hotenja? Učiteljica in ljubiteljica branja Nina Jelen Drevo želja te pripravi, da razmišljaš o predsodkih, o sprejemanju, o sožitju med bitji in ljudimi kljub temu, da smo si različni.
