From Our Editors

Three seeds grow into three beautiful trees, each of which serves a different function in nature and for people.

Editorial Reviews

Three conifers begin to grow at the same time. At maturity, one is cut to manufacture paper (including gift-wrap, other party goods, and ``even this book''''); one becomes a giant Christmas tree (for Rockefeller Center); while, next to the two stumps, the ``most important'''' tree still stands, home to an unrealistic peaceable kingdom of birds and beasts--eagle and titmouse, nocturnal raccoon and owl, and many more, all together under a sunny sky. The value of the ecological message goes without saying; the presentation here in simple text and engaging cartoon-style illustrations is cheerful, though not very thoughtfully developed. (Picture book. 4-8)
