Balloons do come from trees…rubber trees! Have you ever wondered how balloons are made? This rhyming story follows the wide variety of steps involved in the balloon process, starting with the tapping of the rubber trees, to the ship that carries the liquid rubber to the factory, to the manufacturing process… all so you can have balloons at your birthday party.
Did I just say birthday party? What a coincidence, it just so happens that Balloon Trees is having it’s 5th birthday today and to celebrate, I’m giving away two copies to one lucky winner (one each in English and Spanish). Just leave a comment below and the winner will be randomly selected from the comments on April 15, 2018. U.S. entries only please.
Contest update 4/16/18: Congratulations to contest winner M.Ripin who will be receiving two copies of Balloon Trees!
