As an Oak Tree Grows

Author(s): G. Brian Karas

Picture books

This inventive book relays history from a unique perspective, showing how much the world can transform from a single vantage point. This fascinating framing device lets readers watch as populations shift and the landscape transitions from country to city. While methods of transportation, communication and energy use progress rapidly, other things hardly seem to change at all. Perfect for budding historians and nature enthusiasts alike, the time-lapse quality of the detail-packed illustrations encourage readers to pore over each spread to spot the changes that come with each new era. A fact-filled poster is included to add to the fun.
