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
