The Gift of the TreeBook - 1992
A reillustrated version of The Dead Tree explains how a proud old oak tree provides food and shelter for a variety of forest animals and plants, even when most of its branches have crashed to the ground.
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.
Traces the life cycle of an oak tree and describes the animals that depend on it for shelter and food
