Happy Friday, friends! Our book today was Tree by Britta Teckentrup, a fantastic peek-through journey through a year’s worth of changing seasons, centering around a tree and its inhabitants. Told in rhyme, the story introduces a tall tree and the wise owl who lives there, and follows both as they watch the winter melt into spring, spring to summer, and so on. Different animals and plants appear and disappear though the seasons’ changes, but owl and the tree remain, watching the changing forest around them.
As you can tell from the picture, JJ adored this book! The peek-though pages especially fascinating to her: you can see the owl in his hole all the way from the cover, and different animals also appear and disappear in cutouts as the seasons progress. The art is lively and colorful, and the rhymes are fun and easy to read. The length is just about perfect for a one-year-old, too. This was an all-around fantastic book of seasons for little ones, and we highly recommend it! Baby Bookworm approved!
