Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deep in the forest . . .

A bear sharpens her claws on a tree trunk. The scratched bark chips; a tiny hole forms. Timber beetles tunnel inside. The hole grows bigger and bigger.

In lyrical prose, Barbara Brenner reveals the fascinating happenings in one small place. She explains how, over many years, the rough hole transforms into a cozy hollow — home to salamanders, tree frogs, a family of white-footed mice. Tom Leonards absorbing illustrations take you beneath the bark to a hidden world. His warm, lifelike depictions of squirrels and bluebirds, snakes and spiders show the splendor that dwells in the most unexpected places.

So stop. Observe. Explore your natural world. If you look closely enough, you will surely find . . . one small place that is home for something.

Synopsis:

In lively and lyrical prose, Barbara Brenner tells how a scratch on a tree slowly transforms into a cozy hollow— one small place that can be home for something. Brilliant, breathtaking spreads focus on the depth and details of this tree hole, showing a maze of tunnels under the bark and creatures barely visible to the human eye. Tom Leonard’ s artwork is thoroughly researched and delightfully eye-catching. With tenderness, he captures the beauty of the squirrels and bluebirds, snakes and spiders that visit this tree hole over many years. Published in time for Earth Day, these companion titles will help children gain a greater appreciation for creatures of the forest and sea, as they grow to become caretakers of our planet.
