Loved this book. Beautiful vibrant illustrations. I love how it brings all of the animals back in at the end after the acorn becomes a great big tree. Great teaching about acorn to tree. Love the repetition, the rhyme, and the ease with which it can be used with my 3 year old who is beginning reading while cute and simple enough to simultaneously read to our infant.
This would be a great book to read on Arbor Day, Earth Day or in the fall! The illustrations are bright and the story is simple with rhyming words!
Sweet story about a little acorn growing up to be "everything it had promised" to be. Potentially good flannel story as well.

Lovely little board book that tells the story of an oak tree for our youngest readers.
Great for toddlers/preschoolers to introduce the life of a seed.
