Who Would Like a Christmas Tree?
WHO WOULD LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE? (2009)
Written by Ellen Bryan Obed
Illustrated by Anne Hunter
Who would like a Christmas tree? The answer may surprise you! From January through December, these trees are food, shelter, nesting grounds, and much more for diverse animals and insects. Readers delight in turning the page to see what purpose the balsam fir has for the white-tailed deer, the monarch butterflies, the fox, or the black-capped chickadees. In the back of the book, the Christmas tree farmer speaks of what she does to take care of her farm around the year. (Ages 3-9)
PRAISE FOR Who Would Like a Christmas Tree?
Cross-hatched ink and watercolor drawings create lovely, varied scenes of this special habitat in all seasons, while the text gives voice to the creatures sharing it with the fir trees. An original read-aloud.
A fine Christmas gift for a budding scientist.
