Horn Book Review

A father and son observe the winter flora and fauna that inhabit the woods around Long Pond as they set out to find a Christmas tree. Stunning, realistic pictures capture the feeling of winter and convey a genuine love and respect for the natural world. From HORN BOOK 1992, (c) Copyright 2010.

Booklist Review

Ages 5-7. The usually unnoticed daily drama of finding food in a winter forest beckons when a boy, his father, and their dog search for a holiday tree on a crisp Christmas Eve. Having cut a beautiful spruce planted by the boy's grandfather, the party returns through the woods, enjoying the natural world--finding animal tracks in the snow, spotting deer, and listening for activity inside a beaver lodge. The father cuts down a poplar near Long Pond so the deer can feed in the spring on the sapling shoots that will appear. The pristine paintings, rich in color and composition, have an almost photographic quality; scenes glisten as the white snow reveals the special aspects of winter--the peaceful look of the forest on a still day and the hunting of predators. This fourth book about Long Pond maintains the series' standards of clarity, appreciation of the balance of nature, and respect for the environment. A good choice for winter studies.
