This rich introduction to the life of a tree by Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Lois Ehlert is a celebration of nature featuring a child's connection to a sugar maple tree.
Ehlert blends bold graphics, vibrant colors, and precise details in her watercolor collage alongside found objects like seeds, fabric, wire, and roots in this innovative work of early nonfiction. A special glossary explains how roots absorb nutrients, what photosynthesis is, how sap circulates, how to make a bird treat, and other facts about trees. Children and adults will feel inspired to take a closer look at the nature in their own backyards.
