Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
When squirrels bury acorns for winter, their forgetfulness can produce something amazing: a mighty oak tree. Underground, the acorn, which is the seed of an oak tree, sprouts a root with the help of the energy stored in the acorn. Once the root is established, the shoot grows upward, and leaves begin to appear. With the help of sun and water, the seedling grows into a young oak tree in about twenty years, at which point it begins to produce both male and female flowers. The wind blows pollen from the male to the female flowers, which then become acorns, renewing the oak's life cycle. This vivid introductory science picture book for emerging readers, part of the "Looking at Life Cycles" series, uses short, simple sentences, bolded vocabulary words, and full-color photographs to show, in words and pictures, the consecutive stages of the oak tree. Large type and a progressive life cycle diagram that runs across the bottom of each page make this nonfiction book inviting to students who are more familiar with fictional picture book formats, while the table of contents, glossary, extra page of oak tree facts, index, and supplemental resources make it a great introduction to informational texts. Using a common tree and showing its life cycle in detail allow this book to serve as a spring board to discussions of other types of plants, trees, forests, or conservation. Well-designed, highly engaging, and packed with relevant educational information, this book is an appealing addition to early childhood and primary classrooms, as well as school and public libraries.

Pres-Gr 1

A variety of life cycles is simplistically described. Each book begins with either pregnancy, the laying of eggs, or the sprouting of seeds, and closes with a mature animal or plant ready to begin the cycle again. Only Frog mentions mating directly as "a male and female frog come together to make baby frogs." Butterfly and Frog describe metamorphosis without using the terminology. A crisp, colorful full-page photograph faces each page of text. Across the bottom of each spread a color-coded band builds, including a graphic for each of the preceding life stages. A closing page includes six to eight facts that add interest or more detail. This basic information is well organized and presented in an attractive format.
