Because of an Acorn by Lola M. Schaefer

Because of an Acorn by Lola M. Schaefer and Adam Schaefer; illustrated by Fran Preston-Gannon. 2016. Print and ink textures that were scanned and digitally manipulated.

Brief Summary: This story begins with an acorn becoming a tree and how the tree becomes the nest to a bird and continues connecting how all are in the forest ecology and depend on one another.

Comments: Very simple words. Each concept begins with “Because of…”  Illustrations are brilliant and full on each page. Back pages tell about white oak trees. Great book to share with students in an ecology unit.
