"Because of an acorn, a tree grows, a bird nests, a seed becomes a flower. Enchanting die-cuts illustrate the vital connections between the layers of an ecosystem in this magical book. Wander down the forest path to learn how every tree, flower, plant, and animal connect to one another in spiraling circles of life. An acorn is just the beginning."

The hip bone's connected to the leg bone....the leg bone's connected to the ..... You get the idea.  It's all connected.

Those same connections are all around us in our natural world.  As our children turn more and more to the digitized version of the world, it's all the more important that we teach them to look at and understand the connections that drive the ecosystems around us.

We begin with an acorn, its cap attached to two sprouting leaves and its meat actually cut out of the page to give you a glimpse of what lies ahead.

"Because of this acorn, we get a tree.  Because of a tree, a bird."

The illustrations are drawn to bring each bug, animal, bird and so forth forward just to a child's eye view.

Simple, vivid and welcoming, clearly the next link in this chain is you the reader.

Portions of the proceeds from the sales of the book will go to the NRDC, Natural Resources Defense Council.
