Review: This book looks at the life cycle of the peach tree, as a coyote participates in its growth and development. This story has a very natural and simple spirit to it, as it explains in writing and through wonderful illustrations the ways in which animals and plants rely on each other for life and growth.

Genre: Coyote Plants a Tree is both an example of realistic fiction as well as informational. The life cycle of a peach tree is a non-fiction topic, but the way in which the author decided to tell of its life cycle was through the lens of the animals who eat and interact with the peach tree. Because of the loose story line that was part of this book, I felt that it was best described as both realistic fiction and informational. The setting and the animal characters, especially the coyote, make this story believable to the reader. It also follows the life and growth of the peach tree. ( )

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Review: The events in the book pertain to real life. Also the reader can easily relate to the characters because they are easily recognizable. Events and characters are contemporary. Yet, the events within the book are unreal because a coyote cannot plant a tree.
Use: 1. Season lesson 2. Planting seeds
Media: Water Color
Age: Primary, Intermediate
Character: The author describes the coyote who is the main character. He is a protaginist, yet flat because the reader learns very little about him. His character throughout the book is static because he does not change much. ( )
