    Covering 20 years in the life of an oak, this picture book follows a talkative acorn as it appears on the parent tree and then eventually falls to the ground, is carried to another location, and sprouts. Over the years it grows layers and bark, and the text describes how the tree finds nourishment, growing straight and tall. The double-page spread showing the change in the tree from its sixth year to its ninth is pretty impressive, giving hope to those who plant trees in their yards and then won Covering 20 years in the life of an oak, this picture book follows a talkative acorn as it appears on the parent tree and then eventually falls to the ground, is carried to another location, and sprouts. Over the years it grows layers and bark, and the text describes how the tree finds nourishment, growing straight and tall. The double-page spread showing the change in the tree from its sixth year to its ninth is pretty impressive, giving hope to those who plant trees in their yards and then wonder if they'll ever grow tall enough to offer much-needed shade. There aren't many picture books that explain this process as simply as this one. Back matter includes information on the different parts of a tree as well as a diagram of its layers, including heartwood, sapwood, cambium cell layer, inner bark, and outer bark. There is also a page that shows the lifespan of this oak tree in a nutshell, flourishing in its hundredth year and past maturity with nary a leaf after three centuries. The story itself is told in a diary format, and the digital illustrations add character to this oak tree's tale. As a lover of puns and word play, I appreciated the book's title. Young readers will surely come to appreciate the trees that they often take for granted after reading this book.

    This is a great nonfiction book about the life of a tree. It starts out a tiny acorn and grows year after year (time passes quickly in this book out of necessity). Children can learn the parts of the tree with great illustrations and diagrams to help along the way. In the end is a summary of the life cycle of the tree as well. The first person narrative along with the great artwork (especially the facial expressions on the main character/tree), make the story very cute!

My kids didn't like that there was a picture in the life cycle of the tree that showed that eventually the tree will die out (in about 300-400 years). But that is a part of life, so I think it's important that it's in there. It was discrete and certainly tasteful, I feel it's inclusion is necessary (even if my kids don't like it), that's life. Recommended for children ages 2-8 Anyone looking to foster an appreciation for nature (or education about nature) should check out this book. I feel this would be especially good for any child that might have trouble getting interested in non fiction because it's so cute and imaginatively written and drawn.

    Starting as a green acorn on a big oak tree, we read entries in the diary - one or two a year for a while, then every few years as things change. Planted by a squirrel who buried the acorn, it's growing in the shade of its grandmother, and getting bigger every year. We learn about photosynthesis, the different kinds of bark, even how an oak tree affects global warming! Treemendous is so cute! I loved the sweet faces Mike Ciccotello put on the trees.

We learn about photosynthesis, the different kinds of bark, even how an oak tree affects global warming! Treemendous is so cute! I loved the sweet faces Mike Ciccotello put on the trees. Not too cartoony, just enough to make the tree personable, but it is still a tree. A great way to explore the life of a mighty oak, from seed to mature tree.

    I'm not sure that the audience for this story is clear. The pictures are great; the eyelashes and smile on the acorns and trees reminds me a lot of Disney/Pixar animations. I think the "diary" aspect of this story could have been used more often, and I feel the science came too late. However, the simplicity of much of the text makes this book a great introduction to a science unit or a family talk about Earth Day, a nature walk, your backyard, etc. I'm not sure that the audience for this story is clear.

    Treemendous tells the story of a small acorn becoming a mighty oak. Using a quasi-journal format which could be a good model for aspiring writers. The reader also learns a lot about the tree growth from the journal entries and the illustrations. Reference pages in the back of the book also provide additional information and connections to other resources. A good book for a classroom collection especially when studying plants.

    I totally enjoyed this book. The diary format follows a small acorn as it slowly grows into a mighty oak. It is cleverly written with tree puns and information about the growth of oak trees. Along with the colorful and engaging illustrations, this book makes for a "tremendously" fun read. I totally enjoyed this book.

    I just finished reading The Wisdom of Trees by Lita Judge and think these two books would pair beautifully. You could also use this book with Diary of a Worm (or Spider or Fly versions) as a mentor text set on journaling. Super cute, hope to eventually buy it.

    I adore Bridget's books, and this one if filled with puns and a unique little acorn/tree voice. The diary format is super fun to read and expressive illustrations make this one another winner!

    Once again, I learned more from a picture book that I ever did in science class.
