Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. This entry into the Nature Watch series is a solid beginning look at a widely distributed U.S. tree. The text covers all the essentials for report writing, including location, characteristics, ecology, anthropological points, and possible future endangerment. The writing is interesting and age appropriate after it overcomes an opening page filled with too many adjectives. The author is not an expert on trees but seems to have done her research. Sharp full-color photographs round out the text, and the captions clarify major points. A good choice for classroom use or for curious browsers. --Donna Beales
