In spring, a snapping turtle lays her eggs on the hillside beneath the tree. In autumn, leaves fall as squirrels scamper up the trunk carrying nuts. And on a winter night, a backdrop of twinkling stars shines through the branches. Each day, the tree changes with the purple and pink of a sunset or a nip of cold air. But the tree is more than a thing of beauty—its changes represent the passage of time in nature. In this stunning book by Thomas Locker, who was seven years old when he won his first award for a painting of a tree that still stands in the National Zoo, exquisite paintings and wondrous text are paired with questions about nature, and science comes alive through art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grabs Your Attention! The paintings in this book are.. wonderful. Some make you feel warm inside and some make you feel cold. There is a poem at the bottom of every page that makes you think hard about the picture . It made me wanna read it again and again and I still do to this day :) A DEFINATE 5 Stars From Me :)
