Staff Reviews

Follow the life cycle of an acorn through this beautifully illustrated book. Children will learn just how important a single tree can be! A portion of the proceeds goes to support the NRDC. A simple introduction to teaching kids about ecosystems. — Whitney Kaaz


Because of an acorn, a tree grows, a bird nests, a seed becomes a flower. Enchanting die-cuts illustrate the vital connections between the layers of an ecosystem in this magical book. Wander down the forest path to learn how every tree, flower, plant, and animal connect to one another in spiraling circles of life. An acorn is just the beginning.
