Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
After the death of its green leaves in the fall, the maple tree reveals its brilliant autumn colors. During the winter the maple tree is barren, but in the spring and summer it flourishes with color. Red buds and flowers appear at the tips of its branches. Male flowers produce pollen, which is carried by insects or blown by the wind to female flowers, fertilizing them and beginning the production of seeds in early spring. Each seed is surrounded by a samara, a hard fruit with a papery wing. As the wind shakes the seeds from the tree, they fly on their wings to the ground where they send roots down so that their leaves can spring up. Over many years the seedling becomes a full-grown maple tree with buds and flowers of its own and repeats the life cycle. The clearly written text is illustrated with fine color photographs. A quiz for the reader, glossary, index, and reading list are included, along with suggested activities for drying leaves, making leaf rubbings, searching for samaras, and making a scrapbook about one special tree. The book is part of the "Springboard into Science" series. 2001 (orig. 1999), Gareth Stevens,

    Great Series!

    Maple Tree is the first book in the series that we have purchased and we plan on buying more. The books have beautiful upclose photos. We have found this book very helpful for our home school use. The paperbacks are very reasonably priced and also lightweight to throw in a backpack and bring with you on a hike.
