Here, in luminous illustrations, is the life cycle of an oak-and how it supports life even after it is gone. An acorn drops from a great oak and grows. Animals nibble at it, a fire threatens it, but overcoming many challenges it eventually towers high in the forest, observing the changing human scene below. Eventually its energy passes into many other life forms?even the cherry pie enjoyed by the boy in the house below.
