The life cycle of an oak tree unfolds in simple yet attention-grabbing text and a nice variety of excellent photographs: close-ups of squirrels eating acorns, a sprouting acorn, green and red leaves, nesting birds, flowers on a mature tree, and more. Final pages explain tree growth, the many animals sheltering in oaks, other tree seeds, and instructions for making a leaf rubbing. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
