Review
/* Starred Review */ Gr 4–8—A newly fallen acorn is having doubts about becoming a tree, declaring that staying in one place like a statue is lonely and boring. But when a variety of woodland fauna and flora edify the young acorn about the dynamic functions of trees, he changes his mind. The details and vocabulary make this much more than a simple introductory book on the topic. Hirsch extensively covers various plant systems, trees' relationships with other life-forms, and how the environment and climate affect trees. The comic format is engaging and the artwork colorful and fun. Children will develop a deeper appreciation for and understanding of trees' important role in the planet's ecology and why their protection and survival are critical to a healthy world. VERDICT Another winner in the series, this title is an excellent addition to most libraries.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA --Jody Kopple (Reviewed 08/01/2018) (School Library Journal, vol 64, issue 8, p86)
