Tree of Life


Product Description:

Grade 2-5-- This handsome book presents a year in the life of the peculiar African baobab tree. Large two-page watercolour illustrations show the habitat of this unusual tree--the dry savannah--and provide close-ups of its odd denizens: exotic birds, colourful insects, strange bats, bushbabies, baboons, and other animals of the African veldt. The tree's enormous trunk (shown spread across two pages and then dwarfing a pair of elephants) and its gnarled, rootlike branches are graphically depicted; its vivid, nectar-filled white flowers are displayed against the black background of night. The text is written in easily read calligraphy, adding to the attractive format. The cycle of growth, ending with rebirth (of a new seedling) at the book's end and the description of the tree's symbiotic relationship with man and beast effectively presents the ecology theme. An attractive, unusual nature lesson. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
