Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Anne Ophelia Dowden's poetically titled The Blossom on the Bow: A Book of Trees is a coherent explanation of the way trees grow with a focus on the seven forest regions of the United States, including a list of the common trees found in each: The northeastern forest, with more than 300 species of wild trees, reigns supreme. Her watercolors of representative tree leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds reveal details hard to capture with photography.

    Trees Everywhere!

    I got this book as a Christmas present a long, long time ago ('95 - seems like a while anyway) and I never actually got around to reading it. I never really could get past the beautiful illustrations! I finally sucked it up and read the text, though. Turns out - it was a very informative book.
