This book is a lovely work of art, with an interesting story as well. I enjoyed it very much, and I believe it would make an excellent picture book for children. It would also work nicely as an attractive coffee table book and/or conversation piece, I think.

The only criticism I have (and it's a small one), is that the text seemed a bit difficult to read at times because of the unusual font that was used. Not so much that it was a problem by any means, but enough that I noticed. I would have preferred a simpler font for reading, although it's unquestionably pretty to look at.

All in all, a very good book.

The writer has a good idea to celebrate a venerable tree and through it share Kansas history. along the Santa Fe Trail. The calligraphy lettering sweeps and curls around the colored pencil sketches. At first this is charming with the double page spreads bordered in brown. Before long, the busyness of the artwork and the up and down lettering become distracting and hard to read.
I like the concept and the first spread has strong appeal. The rhyme fails to hold my attention through the later pages of the book. The people in the scenes are stiff and primitive, but perhaps that fits the pioneer theme.

The story of all the things the old Osage Orange tree has seen is a story of the American west. I enjoyed the story (although it made me sad at the "progress" which has put the old tree in the middle of civilization). What really gives the book its punch is the artwork. It is gentle and calming with amazing detail. While the reading level is listed as ages 9 to 12, this is a perfect lap book for sharing with toddlers and up. Then they'll enjoy reading it to themselves as they get older and someday will be wanting it to share with their little ones. This is a book for the ages.

Once in a blue moon a book comes along that will be of equal interest to children and adults. This book, which tells the story of a tree on the Santa Fe Trail from the time it was a sapling until the current time, with all sorts of activities in between, is excellently written and the art work is unbelievable. I have looked through it many times and each time I find a new detail I had not noticed before, like the cakes and pies at the old time church social. This is a book you will look at and read over and over.

A HAVE TO HAVE BOOK FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
This is such a great book, not only for my grandchildren, greatnephew
and other children that come to visit, but for adults also. A great unique book, awsome hand drawn illustrations and lettering, that bring the past and present alive in this book. Just makes you wonder what that old tree in your yard just might have to say to you if you would just listen. A great Christmas, birthday or anytime present for your loved ones and especially YOURSELF. It will definately be on my list for Christmas presents for my family and friends.

My children and I love this book, and I enjoy reading it to them! I love reading about history, and this book makes history so likeable. I always let my 6 year old pick out her bedtime story, and it's always Dora, or princesses, or Hello Kitty, which are all cute, but superficial. Not to mention, a snore for me to read to her! An adult can only take so much information about a fiesta, prince charming, or whatever Hello Kitty is baking! Since purchasing this book, it's all she wants me to read, she LOVES the pictures! The detail is breathtaking! You can tell so much time, love, and energy, went into this book. The kids are excited about going to plant a tree!

I am a teacher from Sweden who got this book this spring. I saw the uniqueness of it at once - both the text and the illustrations are really made by hand and not by machines, something we see too little of these days. I got it signed from the authors in the most beautiful way as well.
When I first read it out loud to my students (in the ages between 9 and 11), we slowly took our time to get through the pages, talking and pointing, discussing both the new words, the story and the details of the artwork. They enjoyed it a lot! This year we will be studying sustainable development in our school, and this book will then be a part of my material for the older students (12-16), because I think it has a focus on the burning issue of our common future. What will happen to the tree, to all trees, to us? It can also lead to a number of other discussions about US history, emigration, rhymes, traditions, respect...
I warmly recommend it!
When I first saw the book, I was stunned by the originality and beauty of the artwork. Then when I looked inside and read it, I just fell in love with the story. I love trees anyway, and don't we all often wonder what tales they could tell if they could talk? This wonderful old tree stands right along the Santa Fe trail and so has tales to tell of history that is fascinating to all ages. I bought several for my grandchildren, and I consider them heirloom books which they will pass down to their children. There is so much to fascinate children--the story, the artwork, the intriguing lettering, and most of all the idea that trees and nature are worthy of respect and care. I highly recommend this book.
