This Tree Counts works on so many levels. It is more than a beautiful picture book - and the illustrations are amazing! The littlest ones will be mesmerized by the beautiful artwork and delight in counting the creatures that live in harmony with the tree. Those a little older will identify with Mr. Tate's class and the children's enthusiasm in making sure all trees count! Alison Formento cleverly conveys environmental lessons important for us all. A must have for your child's library and a special one to have on hand every Arbor Day or Earth Day. After buying this book, I bought an extra copy for my favorite Kindergarten teacher's in-class library. Simply wonderful!

My kids love trees. Well, mostly they love climbing trees. This adorable book shows there are many reasons to love trees. Part counting book, part classroom tale, there's a lot to love about this book, too. The story follows Mr. Tate's class as they plant 10 baby trees at Oak Lane School. The sweet story and its bright collage art will appeal to nature lovers of all ages. Highly recommended.

This book would be perfect as a gift for a child for Earth Day. The collage-type illustrations are bright, clear, and colorful, and the text cleverly combines counting concepts with information about why trees are so important to us (why they "count") in a fun, kid-friendly way. I absolutely love this book!

Fun text and beautiful illustrations. This book introduces children to a love a nature in a sweet, engaging way. Plus, there is so much going on in each picture, children will want to read this over and over.

There was a lone oak tree on the lawn behind the Oak Lane School. It was a small country school in a village across from a church. The houses were scattered across the landscape and many of them had picket fences in front of them. Mr. Tate's class was getting ready to plant some tree, but before they began there was a story to be told by the giant oak tree. Jake scoffed and said, "Trees can't talk," but Mr. Tate asked them to listen closely so they could hear the giant oak speak. The children clustered around the tree, huddling close to the bark, and began to listen.

There was a lone owl sitting on a branch "waiting for the moon" and two spiders spinning their webs across some smaller branches. There were three chattering squirrels playing up above and "Four robins sing from a nest, calling out hellos." The tree was talking and the children would hear it if they only stopped to listen. Five caterpillars inched along the branches and six ants made their way up the trunk of the tree, onto the branches and across the leaves. There were seven chirping crickets and eight flies looking for food. There were nine ladybugs and even ten earthworms gliding across the roots of the mighty oak. You can hear the oak tree talk if you take the time to listen!

This is an amazing "counting" book about what you can hear if you listen to the heartbeat of an old oak tree. I loved the gentle rhythm of this tale and enjoyed watching it come to life as the count continued. This is a wonderful way to introduce children to not only counting, but also the life forms that can inhabit trees. The artwork is charming and brings a lot to the tale. This was an enjoyable story and would be an excellent read and discuss tale in the homeschool or classroom setting!

Oak Lane School had but one tree growing behind it, so Mr. Tate and his students decided to plant some tree saplings to keep it company. Before the class started digging, Mr. Tate suggested that the children listen carefully to the tree's story and that they think about all that trees have to offer.

Illustrated with striking collages, this new book for young readers begins as a counting book and transitions into a narrative about how people and the ecosystem benefit from trees. Tucked away in these pages is a reminder that trees are used to produce a host of wood-based products ranging from pencils to wood-frame houses, making the book a useful tool for teaching the youngest learners about natural resources.
