Come into the woods to find out what the oak tree sees...
The first book in The World of Hiddel Brock Wood series, What The Oak Tree
Sees is a poetic introduction to the most loved woodland wildlife. Follow their
tracks and discover where they go when the people visit the woodland. With
classic hand-drawn illustrations full of treasures to discover, it is perfect for
reading aloud to younger children as well as for early readers to enjoy. Ideal
for nature loving children at home or in a school or Forest School setting, this
delightful story subtly reinforces the importance of respecting our natural
environment and leaving no trace other than footprints, whilst also teaching
children to recognise classic woodland animal tracks.
