After an oak tree falls in the forest, it has another life as home to a variety of creatures.

Very young children love spotting the animals as they learn about the life cycle of a tree. Full color.

From Horn Book
A quiet text describing the abundant environments and inhabitants within oak tree limbs and logs is well matched with life-like paper collage that creates a textured look. The narrative details how a giant tree topples during a storm, becomes a giant log on the forest floor, then decomposes, becoming soil in which a seedling oak sprouts and grows into a giant tree. -- Copyright © 1998 The Horn Book, Inc.
