This book, about the life of a tree, has a similar beauty. I love that these books aren't afraid to incorporate some craft and emotion into children's books. Not that that doesn't happen elsewhere, but there's something about Alvin Tresselt that gets to me. Highly recommended.
Definitely a fan of Alvin Tresselt!
Apparently this is a republished story originally titled The Dead Tree (1972) now renamed The Gift of the Tree giving it much more positive outlook as well as fresh (1992) painting illustrations bring the wood habitat to life focusing on one tree.
It's educational and lovely talking about the seasons, life span of a tree, and all the creatures that rely on it. A good recommendation from both Memoria Press and specifically HomeschoolLegacy's Forest for the Trees unit study.
I bought this used library book from ThriftBooks.com. I have an affiliate on my blog if you're so inclined.
We also have a few other books by Alvin Tresselt on our shelves (most recommended by Memoria Press as well) including White Snow, Bright Snow and Hide and Seek Fog, as well as Rain, Drop Splash! which we have all enjoyed so far.
