This is the story of a sugar maple tree and the child who planted it. They are friends, growing up together. Come share in their relationship-and see what a good friend a tree can be. Who knows, you might even decide to plant one of your own.
Lois Ehlert uses watercolor collage and pieces of actual seeds, fabric, wire, and roots in this innovative and rich introduction to the life of a tree. A special glossary explains how roots absorb nutrients, what photosynthesis is, how sap circulates, and other facts about trees. “Children will beg to share this book over and over.”--American Bookseller
