Hello, my name is Rachel.
This book is about an oak tree which starts life as a tiny Acorn and survives lots of problems to grow into a strong tree. The cover of the book shows the little tree being shaken by the wind on a stormy day. The sky is dark with scattered clouds lit up by the setting Sun.
Turn over the page to find your first feely picture. In the top left is an acorn. This is the seed of an oak tree. it is pointing downwards with the bumpy cup at the top. There's a short stalk above the cup. Now, move over to feel the acorn in the top right corner of the feely picture. It's split open and a curved chute has grown out of the top and a root out of the bottom
