"Hiscock uses a tree in his neighbor's backyard as the focal point for a discussion of a tree's life cycle. Using a nice combination of text and art, he follows the tree's growth over time--starting with its sprouting from a winged seed around the time of the American Revolution and ending with its evolution into a beautiful shade tree".--Booklist. Full color.
