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.

“As lovely as anything the artist has ever done.” (—School Library Journal)

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 :)
