Because Of An Acorn (Lola M. Schaefer & Adam Schaefer)

Hello, everyone, and Happy New Year! Our first book of 2017 is Because Of An Acorn, written by Lola M. Schaefer and Adam Schaefer, and illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon, a gorgeous look at ecosystems and the importance of each element therein.

Because of an acorn, a tree can grow. Because of a tree, a bird can nest. Page by page, occasionally peeking through a cutout, this book explains in simple, minimal text the importance of each part of an ecosystem, and how even the smallest plant or animal can impact their environment.

This was a great book to explain how these sorts of communities in nature must maintain balance to thrive, and it’s a great length for very young readers. The illustrations are great, and fill each new species with color and life. JJ enjoyed it a lot, and this is great for anyone wanting to teach little readers about the importance of each great tree, and each little acorn. Baby Bookworm approved!
