Traces the life cycle of an oak tree and describes the animals that depend on it for shelter and food.

This is a sweet story of an old tree that is decaying away through the seasons. It really does a great job in showing the circle of life, and in a way, how everything dies. I would use this when learning about certain science topics, like decomposition and consumers in the environment. The illustrations are beautiful to look at, and they are very eye catching for the students.

Second grade reading level. This is a great story to explain to students the circle of life. It is about an old oak tree that lived in the forest for a very long time, which gave shelter to many animals. When the oak tree died it was also very helpful to other animals and gave other trees nourishment.

This book is great for teaching about forests, and what is in them. Also how important trees are dead or alive. This book is about a tree's life cycle and all it does for the forest finally it produces new trees. This is my all time favorite book. I love reading it.
