I love all the detail in the illustration in this page

A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry is a picture book with illustrations by Marc Simont. This book is a Caldecott Medal winner. It is a good book with interesting illustrations. It doesn‘t focus on any social issues and would be a good extension book for outdoor or autumn based activities.
A Tree is Nice uses an interesting illustration style. Every other page set is black and white. This contrast of color versus black and white is a bit confusing because it never really says why they do it. The book gives lots of ideas of how a tree can be used and would be a good extension for an outdoor activity.
Happy birthday Jim Henson, on what would‘ve been your 86th birthday! Thank you for making this world a better place!
Quote from the beginning of this book:
“When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who makes a difference in this world. My hope still is to leave this world a little better for my being here.“ - Jim Henson
