Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Mann
This book offers a thorough examination of trees for young readers. Dorros provides basic information about how trees grow, why they change, and their root systems. He also provides "side-bar" details for the more advanced readers to learn in depth about specific aspects of a tree. Botanist S. D. Schindler adds tremendous depth to the book with his illustrations.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4Leaves, sap, bark, and roots all play a part in nourishing trees through seasonal changes and years of growth. Dorros's short, informative explanations and Schindler's skillfully etched views of trees, forest life, and animals offer an exceptionally attractive science lesson. Topics are handsomely arranged in double-page scenes with sidebars that provide related information. Many aspects of tree growth cyclesthe layers of cambium forming the growth rings, the passage of water, the production of flowers and seeds, the autumnal color change, and the microscopic and larger animal life supporting and supported by treesare beautifully explicated in text, captions, labels, and excellent diagrams. The wide variety of trees and leaves used as examples, the clarity of the discussion, and the natural shades of the colored-pencil illustrations against parchment tones make this book appealing. The slim volume invites browsing and will encourage observation of the natural world.Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
Kirkus Reviews
A verdant testimony to the noble plants that shade our lawns and line our streets. Dorros (Isla, 1995, etc.) goes back to the basic botany of mostly temperate-zone trees, presenting leaves, roots, bark, flowers, and fruit in simple language. He also explains processes such as photosynthesis, the movement of xylem and phloem, and the tree's "ring system" of charting its own age. Using sidebars to his advantage, Dorros sets forth interesting details—e.g., how a baobab stores water—without interrupting the flow of the main text. The science isn't new, but Schindler's illustrations portray it so vigorously that readers will almost hear leaves rustling overhead. Textures abound, from scratchy-looking bark to the smooth round bottoms of acorns. Readers will be exploring woods, sidewalks, and yards—anyplace there are trees—with new eyes.
