Summary

Summary

Winner of the Caldecott Medal

"A radiant and buoyant picture book." --The Horn Book

A Tree Is Nice is a classic tale about the beauty of the everyday world. "Simont's watercolors perfectly complement the poetic simplicity of the text, allowing the reader room to engage in his or her own imaginative embroiderings about trees" (Children's Books and Their Creators).

Trees are beautiful. They fill up the sky. If you have a tree, you can climb up its trunk, roll in its leaves, or hang a swing from one of its limbs. Cows and babies can nap in the shade of a tree. Birds can make nests in the branches. A tree is good to have around. A tree is nice.

Booklist Review

Ages 2-8. In a classic picture book on the delights of trees, an older child tells another that after planting a sapling, ``Every day for years and YEARS you watch the little tree grow. You say to people, I planted that tree,'' thus encouraging others to plant one too.
