Who Will Plant a Tree? Jerry Pallotta , illus. by Tom Leonard. Sleeping Bear , $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-58536-502-9

How easy is it to plant a tree? The animals in this breezy book do it without even trying. “Seeds stuck to the messy fur of an apple-eating black bear. The bear tripped, a seed fell off, and he planted an apple tree!” Monkeys plant fig trees by throwing figs at each other, and in the Amazon River, fish poop does the trick. Leonard's soft illustrations provide an engaging naturalistic setting, but the takeaway message is just how simple it is to plant a tree. Ages 3–7. (Mar.)
