AWARDS & REVIEWS

Reviews

"Tree of Life is beautifully designed, and Thompson’s realistic pictures bring the Earth’s creatures vividly to life. ... some of the vocabulary will prove challenging for readers as young as eight. Older children will nevertheless find this a wonderfully helpful resource."

Quill & Quire, 01/07/2004

"This introduction to the five kingdoms of living things does an excellent job of helping young readers understand how scientists organize and classify all living things. ... Large-sized, both handsome and useful, this is an outstanding collaboration of author and illustrator."

Kirkus Reviews, 01/08/2004

"Striking, lucid, and deceptively simple."

School Library Journal, 01/10/2004
