This Tree Counts!Annotation
If you listen carefully to the lone tree behind Oak Lane School, it has a story to tell, about... one owl, two spiders, three squirrels, four robins, five caterpillars, six ants, seven crickets, eight flies, nine ladybugs, and ten earthworms, all living safe and free in their tree home.
What does this tree need? The children know-it needs friends
Alison Formento's gentle story, illustrated with Sarah Snow's beautiful papercuts, whispers important ideas to all young tree lovers.
