Teckentrup, Britta Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book Doubleday Books, 2015. $14.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
Owl watches the world from his tree. He sees other animals and birds, but most notable is the change of weather. The book begins with winter and goes through all four season, ending a year later in the spring. The owl is cut out of the pages and as the other animals climb in the tree their silhouettes are cut out as well. This book has cute illustrations and is a fun addition for a lesson on seasons. The story rhymes and is poetic about the seasons. There’s not really a story as much as an observation of the changing of the seasons from the owl.
