Each one, in its own way, has helped to plant a tree.In myriad ways and diverse environments, Mother Nature is given a hand in dispersing seeds that eventually grow into trees.From the apple seeds falling off the sticky fur of a black bear to the pine seed carried by an army of ants marching to their anthill, creatures great and creatures small participatein nature's cyclical dance in the planting of a tree.Jerry Pallotta, author of more than 50 children's books, visits at least150 schools each year.

Booklist Review: "I wonder who will plant a tree? begins this attractive picture book on seed dispersal. In each of the double-page spreads, an animal helps move a seed that germinates and sprouts as a seedling tree. A squirrel buries an acorn, ants carry a pine nut underground, an owl coughs up a pellet after eating a mouse that had eaten elm seeds, and students on a field trip plant seedlings. Occasionally the wording is less than precise: after a fish in the Amazon River eats fruit, the text reads, This fish poops and trees are planted all over the rainforest, which is something of an overstatement in terms of cause and effect. But the short, simple text and often-handsome, colorful artwork work well together to convey the book's theme. Although JoAnn Early Macken's Flip, Float, Fly: Seeds on the Move (2008) remains the go-to picture book on this topic for young children, libraries may want to add this one as well.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
