The Tree

By Neal Layton

A delightful picture book with a wonderful twist which encourages young children to think about the way animals and humans live side by side.

The tree. Home to a family of birds in their nest, squirrels in their drey and rabbits in their burrow. But what happens to the animals when a man and woman decide to cut it down and use it for their dream house? Can the tree be home to both the animals and the humans? A simple yet fun and distinctive picture book, with a strong environmental message about the importance of respecting animal habitats, by the award-winning Neal Layton.

Reviews

'...an extremely simple and beautifully illustrated story.' Culture Baby

'It is a story aimed at younger readers who will appreciate reading it over and over again, but its message is appealing to a much wider audience. This is also an excellent recommendation for schools who want a gentle approach to exploring the impact of our actions on the world we live in.' Inis Magazine

'This excellent picture book, which at first glance is perfect for younger readers but promotes themes that can be explored by all ages, highlights the importance of understanding the environment around us and how our actions, deliberate or not, can harm it.' The Reading Zone

'A delightful story with a strong environmental message, this fun and distinctive picture book for young children is shortlisted for the Gold Smarties Award.' Primary Times

'Very simple text combines with expressive illustrations to tell a moving story about the importance of respecting animal habitats, and how we can help.' Parents in Touch

' “If Neal Layton were a bird, he’d be part of that genus that includes John Burningham and Quentin Blake, because it is with similar delight and abandon that he warbles and flits about his own branches. It’s blue dawn as we glide toward the cozy conifer at the centre of Layton’s lovely new book, The Tree.”' New York Times
