This was my older son's favorite book for years when he was younger. It's about the circle of life---a tree gets old and falls over in a storm, and a new tree grows near it. The best part is the illustrations---they are extremely intricate and have millions of hidden little details, and almost everything has a face, including the trees. My husband didn't like this book as he felt it was a little morbid for young kids, but it never seemed to bother William! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671747908, Library Binding)

Ssh . . . Listen to the woods. In this elegant edition, Victoria Wirth and Scott Banfill reveal for us the secret lives of woodland trees. Wirth's sparse, honest text narrates the eternal cycle of nature--birth, growth, death, and joyous rebirth--through the events that occur to a generation of trees. Beautifully detailed and passionately dramatic, Banfill's breathtaking paintings imbue the trees with character and personality. Full color.

A poetic portrayal of the cycle of life of trees of a forest as they share thoughts and wisdom over the years.
