The Tree in the Ancient Forest

The Tree in the Ancient Forest - Carol Reed-Jones,  Christopher Canyon (Illustrator) First impression: This book is trying to be majestic, beautiful and important (like the ancient forest?).

Beginning with a 300 year old tree, goes through the food chain of a forest in a "there was an old lady who lived in a shoe" kind of way (beautifully and majestically, no silliness here).

Appendix includes:
*Characters in this story (tree, roots, animals, etc.)
*What is an ancient forest? (big trees, dead trees, fallen trees, etc.)
*Why are ancient forests important?

Really thought I was going to hate this book. In the end I enjoyed it.
