The old tree is the home to many animals. They end up having to work together for a common goal. ( )

This book is called The Old Tree by Ruth Brown and I really like this book because of all the animals. I love books where animals can talk and are like humans because kids are very fascinated with animals. Also, this book teaches kids about all the different types of animals that live in trees or outside. This book is about a huge group of different animals that come together to figure out why there’s an “X” on the tree. The pictures in this book are magnificent, especially the one at the end.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763634611, Hardcover)

Cross-species cooperation helps to save a leafy home in an endearing, pastoral tale that features a final pop-up surprise.

Deep in the forest one morning, Pigeon Post is going about her usual business when she notices a huge X on the trunk of the old tree. All the tree’s residents have a different theory about whom is to blame, until Captain Crow solves the mystery — but can they stop their quarreling before it’s too late? Ruth Brown’s delightful tale of cooperation and conservation, complemented by her luminous illustrations, is sure to engage readers from the start of the story to the wonderful pop-up tree on the final spread.
