A rhyming text beautifully describes the growth and life of a sycamore tree from its start as a seed to its eventual emergence as a ‘leaf-laden, bark-bound arboreal home’ for many living creatures. The delicate illustrations on the opposite page echo the text as well as complementing and extending it with further detail. A final fold out spread demonstrates how the tree may multiply as new seeds dance off in the wind and this is backed up by some fascinating facts.
