The Tree in the Ancient Forest
The remarkable web of plants and animals living around a single old fir tree takes on a life of its own in this stunningly illustrated story. Carol Reed-Jones’ repetitive, cumulative verse – a poetic technique that children universally enjoy – aptly portrays the amazing ways in which the inhabitants of the forest depend upon one another for survival. Christopher Canyon’s memorable full-color paintings manage to be both magical and true to life. Complete with a guide to the forest creatures and their interrelationships, this book is a valuable learning tool as well as fun for kids.
