From the Publisher
Trees are beautiful. They fill up the sky. If you have a tree,
you can climb up its trunk, roll in its leaves, or hang a swing
from one of its limbs. Cows and babies can nap in the shade of a
tree. Birds can make nests in the branches. A tree is good to have
around. A tree is nice.

was graduated from Northwestern University in 1950. Her first book,
A Tree is Nice, was awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1956
for the illustrations by Marc Simont.
From Our Editors
This Caldecott Medal-winning book shows, with poetic simplicity and beauty, why trees are so good to have around as it describes the delights to be had in, with, or under a tree. Full-color illustrations.
