View All Available Formats & Editions


In simple rhyme, Nancy Van Laan tells the joyous story of a child looking for a tree to call his own. He climbs five trees and discovers them occupied by everything from one owl nesting to five spiders spinning, until at last he finds the tree that's perfect for him . . . right in his own backyard! Told from a child's perspective, this engaging book has many levels: it's a counting book, a book of concepts, and a point-and-say book, and it also shows every child's desire to explore the big, wide world and know that the comfort of home is close at hand. Bold, graphic illustrations add to the fun, making this a great choice for young audiences.

This is a cute book about a guy who wants to hang out in a tree and encounters the animals that are living the trees and he goes to another tree and the same thing till he finds a tree for him.

I think a little too long and repetitive for storytime. A boy is looking for a tree for him, does not matter what size or age, he just wants a tree to climb. It turns out all the trees are taken by other animals. The animals are the counting portion of the book. In the end he finds a tree with a tree house just for him.

This is a great book that targets many pre-literacy and early literacy skills, such as phonological awareness (rhyming, rhythm, chanting, repetition). I have used it for several group lessons, and the children love it.

He loves the pictures and makes me read it at least twice before going to bed. Samton's illustrations are superb!

This is a great book for kids that are still learning to read. This year, I helped the kindergarten teacher at my school as a monitor. I had seen many kids struggling with reading not because they didnt know how but because they needed an exciting book that was on their level to read. This book has easy simple texts that are full of life and excitment. The pictures are colorful and bold going together perfectly! A winning combination!
