Endpapers: Repeated squares of four oak trees - one for each season
Only one (big beautiful) tree lived on the Oak Lane School grounds. So Mr. Tate's class decides to plant more trees.
We learn a lot about oak trees - what lives in them as well as all sorts of useful info for young readers. The illustrations are lovely, simple, completely covering most pages. I'm very drawn to the oak leaves. Their shape is so recognizable.
Lovely book. Go Earth Day! Go treeeeees! I love trees.
