How much life does one tree support? Readers will be surprised in this beautifully illustrated nonfiction picture book. Focusing on one almendro tree, we see in ever increasing numbers the different kinds of other life forms this rainforest tree provides food and shelter for.
The format reminds me a bit of Lifetime- at least, the word problems included in the back of the book. It also semi-works as a seek and find book for the smaller quantities.
Another fun and colorfully illustrated addition in the Did You Know series. This time we learn about dinosaurs. I didn’t even know this had come out a few months ago. I didn’t find this as much fun as the other titles in the series, which was surprising, but it’s still jam-packed with information.
With such talented names attached to this project, it’s no wonder the finished product is a marvel to behold. Formatted like a programme, Marian Anderson’s life plays out beautifully despite the struggles she had to face during her time. I really appreciate the details Selznick puts into his works.
