Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you listen carefully to the lone tree behind Oak Lane School, it has a story to tell, about... one owl, two spiders, three squirrels, four robins, five caterpillars, six ants, seven crickets, eight flies, nine ladybugs, and ten earthworms, all living safe and free in their tree home.

What does this tree need? The children know-it needs friends!

Alison Formento's gentle story, illustrated with Sarah Snow's beautiful papercuts, whispers important ideas to all young tree lovers.

Review:

"'Trees will speak only if you listen closely,' Mr. Tate tells his students, as they prepare to plant trees near a large oak. As they listen, they hear the tree tell a counting story, which describes the animals that make the tree their home: 'One owl sits high on my branches, waiting for the moon. Two spiders cling tight to webs, spinning all day long.' Snow's joyful cut-paper collages feel alive with activity, making this a green counting book with panache. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

As Mr. Tate's class prepares to plant saplings, they hear the giant oak tree in their schoolyard tell about all the animal life it supports.
