Where Would I Be in an Evergreen Tree?

This story-in-verse explores the beauty of the Pacific Northwest through the ecosystem of an evergreen tree. The tree’s life cycle is illustrated by the variety of plants and animals it supports. Andrea Gabriel’s pastel images–soft greens, mellow blues, and cozy browns–perfectly complement the gentle, informative text. Jennifer Blomgren’s sensitive use of language–“Its tender young needles sparkled with dew, / like jewels in the wind, as the baby tree grew”–make the book appealing to both children and parents in any locale.

Wonderful, beautiful book!

A wonderful, beautifully illustrated book that is a real treasure to share with your children!

Beautiful artwork

This book has beautiful pictures. Seriously gorgeous artwork with a wonderful poem describing the areas of the forest and the animals that live there. This is going to be a classic in my house because I love to read this book and my children love to listen.

Touches the child within

I am 72 years old. I bought this book for myself…for the child in me it brought forth. The story is magical. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and will pull you into the story of this tree in the forest and all the life it supports. Again, magical. I love it.
