At first I expected this book to be about the changing of seasons or Autumn because inside the front cover there is a cut out of a leaf amongst a pile of yellow leaves. My son and I quickly determined that this book is more about the author writing about her maple tree, its parts and how it was planted. My son’s favorite illustrations were the ones that included the Black capped Chickadees, Squirrels and Downey Woodpecker eating suet from the tree. I think this book would work well when discussing the life cycle of a tree or about planting trees.

Ronyell Yeah, I actually thought that this book was going to be about autumn, but I was a bit disappointed at how this book was mainly about her maple tree.
