Spectacular illustrations rendered in oil paint, and a rhyming text that describes a tree’s activities from its roots to its branches, introduce young readers to the amazing activities that go on in a tree. Acorns nibbled by chipmunks, ants scurrying across a trunk, a spider spinning a web, leaves “breathing out air for all to breathe in”—everything adds up to a “busy tree” for all to “come and see.”

The Busy Tree based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
With oil paintings that are both realistic and beautiful, Busy Tree informs readers of the many uses for a tree. In first -person rhyme, the "tree" tells of its many denizens, "This is the spider that lives in my bark, spinning a web from dawn until dark." A simple and powerful introduction to trees.
Excellent rhyming text, about the different parts, functions, homes, use of a tree, a very busy tree.
