    As a person on the autism spectrum, I especially love books with autistic narrators I am always a bit wary when they are written by a neurotypical author Will they write from the martyr parent position, the Rainman, or the Autistic Speaks puzzle piece perspective Only a few manage the Autistic character as an interesting individual who happens to be autistic, not a stereotype The author of The Eagle Tree does a splendid job with the character of March Wong, using his special interest in trees to [...]

    I believe in trees.Meet March Wong, a fourteen year old autistic boy who is obsessed with trees If he had his way, he would talk about nothing but trees, and spend his time doing nothing but climbing them But, this tree climbing thing isn t sitting too well with everyone else Neighbors are calling the cops, and his mom is threatening to move him to a treeless town in Arizona And, if he continues getting injured in his climbing quests, the authorities may take him away from his mother, and put hi [...]

    I admit it I have a problem with first person narratives by children My problem is so great that I could not make it through Jonathan Safran Foer s highly regarded book, EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE The EAGLE TREE is narrated by 14 year old Peter March Wong Peter, or March as he prefers to be called, is autistic He is preoccupied by trees, so it is fortunate that he lives with his mother in the state of Washington, rather than with his father in Arizona He describes the surviving old grow [...]

    The Eagle Tree by Ned Hayes is a book that I nominated on Kindle Scout like Melophobia and The Lost Tribe In this case, the author s name was familiar to me I had reviewed his rather unusual historical mystery, Sinful Folk, on Book Babe It seems to me that there was a long delay between the selection of The Eagle Tree for publication by Kindle Press in October 2015 and its recent publication this May I confess that I forgot that I had nominated it and was entitled to a free copy according to Kin [...]

    I did not finish this book I could not keep reading it If you love trees and every bit of information you could possibly dig up about each and every tree, then you will like this book I thought there was much much too much info about trees and not enough about the story, which I think was about an autistic 14 year old boy who was always hurting himself by climbing trees and was affecting the possibility of him being taken away from his mom.

    Finished this Kindle First book two days after selecting it this month This novel is narrated by a fourteen year old boy with autism Viewing the world through these eyes was a treasure especially as a teacher reading this Loved the ideas of trees, nature, our connectedness with all things, etc.

    I know this is told by an autistic character, but the trees are getting to me, even as a biologist I did like it, overall 3.5 rating for slow start.

    My So Called Review The Eagle Tree is the first book I ve read by author, Ned Hayes and I d like to start this review by giving a very special thanks to Trish Collins at TLC Book Tours She contacted me to ask if I d like to review this book and after reading the synopsis I couldn t accept fast enough Although she could not have known it at the time, The Eagle Tree s subject matter is one I relate to on a very personal level My oldest son was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome when he was 5 and it [...]

    I selected this book from First because the reviews were tremendous, but it is not a book that would have ordinarily stood out to me I was super impressed since most of the First books seems so amateurish.The narration from the young boy is done so well that I feel as if I am actually inside a real boy s mind I especially like how well the author has captured the autistic mind The only thing that would have made the book better is if he had added sections of the mother with her thoughts and fear [...]

    I am a biology teacher and I really like trees, so this book piqued my interest.I appreciated the insight of Peter March Wong, a 14 year old boy who is on the spectrum and who is a self made tree expert Seeing the world through Peter s eyes allowed the reader to experience the world in a different way The book incorporates a lot of scientific information about trees into the storyline photosynthesis, carbon fixation, transpiration, carbon sinks , and the nitrogen cycle, as well as ecological iss [...]

    All thanks to Prime s Kindle First perk, I was able to read this book prior to its release The Eagle Tree is narrated by 14 y o March Wong, an autistic boy with a vast love and knowledge of Pacific Northwest trees I learned a lot about trees, the marbled murrelet, nature and people and just how interconnected and interdependent they are The book also has a lot to teach about autism Author Ned Hayes based the story on his past experience working with children on the autistic spectrum.I can confid [...]

    I enjoyed this book about fourteen year old March Wong, who is autistic and very bright I have family and friends with children on the spectrum and what s most important for people to know is that every autistic child is different Hearing March describe what he likes and doest like and why he does things was very enlightening March knows everything there is to know about trees and he doesn t hesitate to let people know His desire to do something greater was a selfless act that everyone should le [...]

    You know, I really wanted to finish this book I really, really did But the plot progressed far too slowly and the book was too repetitive to keep me engaged till the end The story is written from the point of view of a 14 year old autistic boy who loves everything about trees He loves counting trees, climbing trees, and talking about trees And talking even about trees Talking about where they grow, when they grow, why they grow, and how they grow, in extremely intricate scientific detail Becaus [...]

    This is a book about love and loss Did you know that it s possible to lose a whole forest, one tree family at a time Not only possible, it s happening right now and it will continue The Appalachians will become a desert within a few years How do you feel about this Have you wanted something so much that you were willing to risk your life for it I like books that make the feel like i m inside another person s mind, especially if the mind is very different from my own March, the narrator of the st [...]

    Looking at the world from the point of view of another person is always interesting This book goes a step further with a first person account from a boy somewhere in the autistic spectrum That, and a crash course in the ecology of the evergreen Pacific Northwest, make this book very compelling As a novice birder, I loved the references to the marbled murrelet The book reminded me of readingThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time many years ago A similarly thought provoking book for tho [...]

    Maybe it s my work experience in Special Education Maybe it s just a damned good story March Wong is a teenage boy with autism Trees are his special interest and his knowledge is deep Written in his own words, we learn how he thinks about the world around him In his efforts to climb a special tree, he learns a lot about how he can form connections with other humans I found this story fascinating and engaging I did tend to tune out on the long sections filled with facts about trees, just as I wou [...]

    This novel is given from the perspective of a 14 year old autistic boy who loves trees I think that it does a good job of letting the reader see a little of what autism is like but it wasn t as good as The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time

    This is hands down one of the best books I ve ever read It gives great insight into the world of a teenager on the autistic spectrum and his love of trees and how he sees the world related to those trees There is something for everyone to enjoy about this book that is so well written I will definitely be looking at from this author.

    A thinker Is everthing in this book accurate I don t know It does it make me excited to learn about Autism and trees.

    There is known about autism than in 1988 That s when the TV show, St Elsewhere, about the staff at St Eligius, an old teaching hospital in Boston, ended a six year run In one of the oddest finales to a series, the last scene fades to a silent autistic boy looking at an orb Since, we did not know much about autism, we were supposed to wonder if the whole series was in the boy s imagination It was a disappointing end to a very good show whose cast included Howie Mandel, Ed Begley, Jr Denzel Washi [...]

    Peter March Wong is a young man whose sole obsession and love in this world is trees He knows everything about them, their lifecycle, their latin taxonomy, the threats by global warming, their habitats, and everything he can possibly know As a boy operating on the autism spectrum, these obsessions have led him to a life where he is as expert as any academic dendrologist but has difficulty balancing these skills with the life and interpersonal skills required to operate independently The apex of [...]

    Hayes does a good job of allowing the reader to experience the world from March s perspective His clear love of and fascination with trees shines through, of course, but I also appreciate the small moments that help us understand his frustration with not understanding the expectations people have of him and not being understood by those same people It was great to see him grow throughout the book, especially when his fascination with trees helps him connect with classmates and adults.

    A terrific story about a 14 year old autistic boy and his love of trees It is written from the boy s perspective in the first person and is very convincing in describing his thoughts and feelings The author has worked in the past with autistic children There is a very exciting ending.

    Peter, who goes by his middle name March, Wong absolutely loves trees He knows everything about them their latin names, how to identify them, their importance to the ecosystem and much, much March also loves to climb trees He climbs at least three trees a day It s his love of trees that gets him to trouble but makes him stand out March doesn t have that many people he trusts or even talks to He has his mother who is feeling overwhelmed and is facing the potential of him leaving her custody He h [...]

    The book cover and title stood out while I was browsing the update feed, and I was curious enough to read the blurb Moments later, I had purchased the book and started reading.While this isn t a book I would normally be drawn to, I m so glad I followed my curiosity and went on this educational, enlightening, and uplifting journey, based in Washington State where I currently reside.In a nutshell or a pinecone this story is about an autistic boy who loves trees, and his thinking as he views and in [...]

    14 year old Peter March Wong is on the autism spectrum and loves trees He knows everything about trees and spends his spare time climbing them which sometimes leads to injuries and not understanding the limitations his mother and society seem to put on him.He wants to climb the Eagle Tree and eventually works with his uncle and others to save the Eagle Tree from developers.I learned a lot about trees and also about how to talk and work with someone on the autism spectrum Good Read.
