Tree Hole Homes
Nature is full of shapes. You can spot a circle in a raindrop, a triangle in a mountaintop, and a star in a blooming flower. Look around. What other shapes can you find?

“Kids will be mesmerized as they pore over the dazzlingly colorful, delicate, and intricate patterns that shapes produce in nature, seen here from a bevy of perspectives. . . Simple, gentle rhyming text enhances the concept, adds to the book's allure, and invites kids to look closely at the shapes presented here.

“A colorful, exciting way to open young children's eyes and minds to the shapes all around them.”
—Kirkus Reviews
Behind the Book
“This book was inspired by a February 2021 Twitter conversation with authors Linda Sue Park and the late April Pulley Sayre. As is true for most book ideas, the concept morphed and evolved over time as it underwent countless revisions. I hope this lyrical invitation to notice and hunt for shapes in nature will pique the curiosity of young readers and encourage them to see the world in a whole new way.”
