Tree is the perfect picture book for curious young minds. Through a hole in the book’s cover, an owl invites us inside to meet a majestic tree and all its forest inhabitants during the changing seasons. With clever peekaboo holes throughout, each page reveals a new set of animals playing and living in the tree – baby bears in the spring, bees buzzing in the summer, squirrels storing nuts in the fall, and the lone owl during the winter chill – until another year begins. All in one majestic tree.
Children will love seeing a new set of animals appear and then disappear as each page is turned, and along the way they’ll learn about the seasons and how a forest and its inhabitants change throughout the year. Tree is one of the New York Public Library’s 100 Best Books for Kids 2016.
