The Gift of the Tree
Tresselt's classic story of The Dead Tree is given new life in this gloriously reillustrated volume. The role of an oak tree in the cycle of nature is revealed as an ancient tree, even as it dies and returns to the earth, provides nourishment for new life all around it. "Impressionistic illustrations beautifully reflect an evocative text." -- Kirkus Reviews.

Review: The Gift of the TreeUser Review - Alexandra Chauran - Goodreads
This book has beautiful art with equally lovely prose. The story about the dead tree returning to the earth teaches about ecology and would also be a great way to start talking to kids about death without it being creepy or painful. Read full review
