Summary
Award-winning author Caroline Pignat's first picture book is an intriguing blend of carefully composed verbal images, knit together with extraordinary visuals by award-winning illustrator François Thisdale. The poem is indeed about the yearly cycle in the life of a tree. But it is also an intriguing poetic concoction. The initial letters of each line in each stanza spell out a word that pertains to that tree's life cycle - SEED, GERMINATE, SHOOT, ROOTS, LEAVES, FLOWERS. It's a kids' acrostic. Young readers will discover the secrets of the poems as they read the text and look at the illustrations that show a rural setting with trees, a farmer, barns, animals and the changing of the seasons. There are also puzzles for the discerning reader
