  • Short Description
A playful story about one acorn's arduous journey to becoming a tree. In the style of “The House That Jack Built,” here's a cumulative, rhyming tale about a nut that falls from an oak that holds the house where Jill plays. The acorn travels inside an old shoe, above the trees and under a stream, as one animal after another steals it, drops it or tosses it. But in the end, the acorn lands on a hillside, where it grows into another grand oak, which now holds the house where Jack (Jill's grandson) plays. It's the circle of life ... well, not quite a circle. But loads of fun all the same!
A playful, lively story about one acorn's difficult path to becoming a tree. This is the house where Jill plays. This is the oak that holds the house where Jill plays. This is the nut that fell from the oak that holds the house where Jill plays ... In the style of “The House That Jack Built,” here's a cumulative, rhyming tale that follows an acorn on an arduous journey, as one animal after another steals it, drops it or tosses it, sending the acorn inside an old shoe, high above the trees and down to the bottom of a stream. But in the end, the rat, goose, bear and more turn out to simply be the conduits that help the acorn eventually land on a hillside, where the warm sun helps it grow into another grand oak tree, which now holds the house where Jack (Jill's grandson) plays. In this lively story, Sangeeta Bhadra offers a playful depiction of the circle of life. The jaunty rhythm of the text (“This is the raccoon, a sneak through and through / that tricked the goose with a bird's-eye view . . .”) and the use of fun-to-say words --- like, “hullabaloooo” and “pee-ew” --- make for a picture book that begs to be read aloud. France Cormier's richly colored illustrations add energy and continuity to the story, as the perspective zooms in and out and dotted lines follow the acorn's path. This book could easily spark discussions about plant life cycles, animal habitats and food chains.

Sangeeta Bhadra is the author of Sam's Pet Temper. She studied biology in university, but has always loved writing. She lives in Brampton, Ontario.
