This beautifully illustrated book will introduce children to the joys of nature, and show them what wonderful secrets are revealed if you just look a little closer. By holding a light behind each page, children can see the creatures who make a tree their home, from the worms who live among the roots to the birds who nest high up in the branches. The clever see-through reading technique creates an experience of interactive learning, showing both the surface and what is hidden underneath at the same time.

Carron Brown (London, UK) has been a children's nonfiction editor and writer for more than 16 years. She has written 12 books in the Ivy Kids Shine-a-Light series, which has over 1 million books in print.From Booklist:
“When you find a tree, look all around it and see who you can find. Remember to look up as well as down.” Look up—there’s a bird carrying a worm in her beak. Where is she taking that worm? Look down—seedlings are leafing out around the base of the tree. Brown’s simple text invites young readers (who might need help with longer words, such as caterpillar) to imagine what is hidden behind a leafy canopy or under a pile of rocks. The reveal is brilliant: colorful, blocky illustrations on the right-hand pages are backed with high-contrast black-and-white pictures on the reverse, making for an ingenious shadow effect. By holding each page up to the light, readers will be able to see the roots of the seedlings and the nest behind the leaves printed on the opposite side. Readers will delight in discovering the wide variety of hidden life within this apple tree. In addition to mammals, birds, and reptiles, invertebrates, plants, and fungi are examined in this clever nature book for the inquisitive preschool audience. Preschool-Grade 1. --Paula Willey
