A Year Around the Great Oak by Gerda MullerBenjamin and Anna love staying with their cousin Robin in his house near the forest. In the autumn, Robin takes them to see his favourite tree -- a giant oak that is 300 years old. The children build a den under the oak tree's giant branches and watch the squirrels hide acorns in its wide trunk. In the winter they ski through the forest and meet the foresters who chose which trees will become firewood this year -- but not their beautiful oak tree! In the spring the children go searching for badgers and see many animals that live in the forest -- nesting birds, gentle deer and shy rabbits. One night, the tree helps Benjamin when he discovers a creature he didn't expect. How can the children say thank you? A beautifully detailed, seasonal story from Gerda Muller, who gave us the beloved Seasons board books and Where Do They Go When it Rains? Children will love to spot the realistic animals and birds that live in the great oak's forest.
'By the creator of Where Do They Go When It Rains, this is an exquisite work of art with a timeless quality ... This is a must for all libraries and schools.'
'Unpredictable, stimulating and ultimately confidence-inducing ... Gerda Muller, whose work may be familiar from her other nature-imbued children's books ('Goldilocks and the Three Bears', 'Where Do They Go When It Rains?'), draws each activity and animal with great detail and attention. Leaf shapes are accurate, and the picture of the children making their hideout from sticks and leaves is as good as a scouting manual; for readers with access to woods this could prove to be a useful as well as a handsome book.'
