What did the Tree See? By Charlotte Guillain and Sam Usher

SKU 00307

Product Details

I had not idea that Oak trees could live for 800+ years!

This follows an acorn as it grows from a sapling and years later and 800 years old tree. Thought the illustrations you get to observe the changes in the landscape as human development advances over the years, from the trees vantage point on a hill. What an inspired idea wonderfully executed.

If you looking for a book to link with local studies and to encourage children to think and explore what a landscape is like, and how it’s been changed then this is it.

The end notes include a history timeline and notes on the life cycle of an Oak tree.

In Key stage 1 (KS1) this is just the kind of story that would have hooked my son in, especially as he loves to collect acorns. It could also be used in KS2 and KS3.
