Summary: This book follows all of the animals of the forest brining colorful ornaments to a tree during winter in order to preserve the colors of the summer. I could use this book to teach about seasons. I could also use this book to teach about what kind of materials could be found in a forest. This was an okay fantasy however it got to be a bit redundant. This is also just an okay version of a fantasy because the animals come to life but it is uneventful.

This is a beautiful book for a child's or student's first remembering of Christmas. Little Bear wakes up and there is snow on the ground, but he is confused and asks where all the colors have gone. All of his friends and the animals of the wilderness collect items that will be hung up on their Christmas tree. Only this tree is decorated with items like leaves, berries, feathers, shoots etc. all to remind the animals of the colors of spring, fall, and summer. At the end, Little Bear is happy to see his colors again. ( )

Caroline Repchuk's "The Snow Tree" is a story about Little Bear awaking to a world of snow covering everything. He wonders around his surroundings in awe of the white blanket of snow covering everything. Many of the forrest animals pull together as a team using colorful elements of their surroundings creating a beautiful Christmas tree.

This story's illistrations pull the story line together perfectly. The imagry and colors, along with the texture of the pages, show how differently the animals are, but how they can all work together and crete something amazing.

This story could be used to read to chldren during the Christmas holiday. The students could read this before decorating their class room Christmas tree to illustrate team work and to also take appreciation in the beauty of nature. ( )

Nature lovers of all ages will delight in this ornate Christmas picture book that celebrates the splendor of the natural world Lavish embossing on every page gently illuminates snow-covered hills and trees, bringing to life the frozen beauty of the woodland setting. A little black bear wakes up to find a wintry world of white all around him. He wonders where all the colors have gone, and steps out into the softly drifted snow to look for them. The cub is soon helped in his search by a whole host of animals, including a raccoon, a blue jay, a lynx, and an arctic fox who bring the brilliant colors of the forest to him, one by one. What the animals finally create together with their treasures is a magical symbol of the Christmas season and a timeless testimonial to the joy of friendship and sharing. Readers will be enchanted by the lovingly rendered woodland animal and forest scenes, as well as the poetic text printed in elegant calligraphy.
