The world around us is an interconnected one, whether we refer to humans or the other organisms we live among. A Tree is a Home, by Pamela Hickman, is a lovely book for preschoolers about some of the many organisms which depend on trees. Set in North America, we see five different animals which use the oak tree as a home, and learn about the growth cycle of each animal, along with the tree. The full color illustrations in this book have a lovely child-like quality to them and add to the text. This book is more non-fiction than story while utilizing the visuals as a wonderful to reinforce what we are reading about.
