Ayano Imai's artwork infuses this story with quiet beauty. One cool fall day, a boy sees a rabbit zip by with an acorn. Curious, he watches first the rabbits, then the birds, and in turn, each of the creatures of the forest bury seeds and nuts in the ground. The life cycle of the forest and all the creatures that support it are portrayed in this lovely book. Even the young boy does his part--reminding the reader how each of us is connected to all living things.
