Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Nelson DeWald
In classic Dr. Seuss fashion, Worth whips up a captivating science lesson for young readers about the parts of trees, with the help of the Cat in the Hat and other favorite Dr. Seuss characters. She masterfully teaches young readers the parts of trees, while providing several examples of each part of the tree. Especially remarkable facts about the specific trees are provided in the margins of the text. Ms. Worth even broaches the subject of photosynthesis with whimsy, "The leaves then pull off / one tree-mendous feat. / They whip up the food / that the tree needs to eat." The content of the book also ranges beyond common tree parts to discuss the types of leaves that appear on various trees, from the maple trees to the more unusual coco-de-mer, Joshua, and cycad trees. The illustrations are clever and appealing drawings which serve to give the reader an incredibly clear and accurate picture of each tree and its parts without being intimidating or stuffy. The author presents a fun, full-fledged backbone for an elementary science unit on plants or trees in this surprisingly sophisticated title that is part of "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library." This is a true must-have for any elementary teaching regarding plants or plant parts.
