KIRKUS REVIEW

The appealing old woodland character introduced in I Was Born in a Tree and Raised by Bees (1977) explains the parts of a tree, uses leaves, seeds, and fall colors to differentiate among species, and then describes the differences between hardwood and softwood forests, emphasizing the advantages of a mixed woods to the many creatures who live in it. A page showing how trees get their shapes, each unique, is of special interest. An attractive introduction, with illustrations that convey information as lucidly as the brief but concise and well-organized text.
