Listen to the music of the trees.
This joyful book follows the life cycle of a tree as it grows from seedling to mature tree, and finally gives way to a new sapling. At every stage of the tree’s life, children are seen playing under its branches.
Each season brings with it new sounds, whether it’s the chirping of birds in the spring or the flitter flutter of leaves in the fall. As well as a home for animals, the tree provides a canopy for a summer picnic, and a perfect place to hang a swing. Most important of all, when old age fells the tree, it provides an acorn from which a new tree will grow.
“This is a beautifully illustrated book. It’s a lovely introduction to the lifecycle of a tree. The poetic rhythm makes easy reading and makes it easier for children to follow. These are some of the nicest illustrations I have seen.”
“This is a really beautiful picture book with not a lot of words but a wonderful message. Kids will follow the life of an acorn into an oak tree and see nature (and people) growing up with the tree. I really liked the images of the animals hidden under the ground and in the tree. The artwork is wonderful and the message is really great too. The tree dies at the end but another acorn is sprouting and children will see the cycle of life continuing.”
