“Trees will speak only if you listen closely,” Mr. Tate tells his students, as they prepare to plant trees near a large oak. As they listen, they hear the tree tell a counting story, which describes the animals that make the tree their home: “One owl sits high on my branches, waiting for the moon. Two spiders cling tight to webs, spinning all day long.” Snow's joyful cut-paper collages feel alive with activity, making this a green counting book with panache. Ages 4–7. (Mar.)
