Synopsis

Watch the tree change as each page is turned! The perfect picture book for curious young minds. 

New York Public Library’s 100 Best Books for Kids 2016!

Through a hole in the book’s cover, an owl invites you inside to meet a majestic tree and all its forest inhabitants during the changing seasons. With clever peekaboo holes throughout, each page reveals a new set of animals playing and living in the tree—baby bears frolicking in the spring, bees buzzing around apples in the summer, squirrels storing nuts in the fall, and finally the lone owl keeping warm during the winter chill—until another year begins. . . .
 
Children will love seeing a new set of animals appear and then disappear as each page is turned, and along the way they’ll learn about the seasons and how a forest and its inhabitants change throughout the year.

And look for its companion books, Bee, Moon, and The Twelve Days of Christmas, in the same Peek-Through Picture Book series!

"Adult readers will relish guiding their little ones into lessons about the seasons, colors, wildlife, and more. This unassuming story is an intergenerational delight."Kirkus Reviews
