Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book by Britta Teckentrup
The publisher says… Through a hole in the book’s cover, an owl invites you inside to meet a majestic tree and all its forest inhabitants during the changing seasons. With clever peekaboo holes throughout, each page reveals a new set of animals playing and living in the tree—baby bears frolicking in the spring, bees buzzing around apples in the summer, squirrels storing nuts in the fall, and finally the lone owl keeping warm during the winter chill—until another year begins. . .
Eva says… Well, first of all, this book has FOXES on almost every page, so that automatically makes it a good one right there. But it’s mainly just a real nice poem about this tree and how it goes through all the seasons. And you get to see ALL the animals and the stuff they do, and how they change and the way the tree changes.
And in the whole thing that OWL never changes. I mean the HOLE thing because that’s something else. This one has all these holes in the pages, and you can see those animals and birds through the holes, but that owl is the only one who stays the same.
The OWL is the only one HOOOO stays the same through the HOLE book! HAHAHA!
Plus it rhymes like poems do, and that’s good. Plus the pictures are real colorful like nature is.
So that’s why THIS one is a good one, bud!
Eva’s rating: ♥♥♥♥ (out of five)
