"When most people think of trees, they do'’t picture a lot of action. Trees seem to be stuck in one place, unaware of what's happening around them and unable to do much about it. This impression is completely wrong!" Glossary. Acorn facts. Bibliography. Full-color illustrations, drawn digitally and colored in Photoshop.

School Library Journal

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
