This Tree, 1, 2, 3

THIS TREE, 1, 2, 3

Plot Summary

If you listen carefully to the lone tree behind the 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.



“This abridged version of Formento’s This Tree Counts (Albert Whitman, 2010) simplifies the ecological lesson….the important message remains. This title functions well as a counting book and as an introduction to an oak tree’s inhabitants.” —School Library Journal
