Book 2 in the Baby Palm Grows Up Series
Baby Palm has grown up to become Little Palm as he plays and learns with his animal friends. At the center of an ecosystem, he sees how animals, trees, and humans are part of each other’s life cycle.
The book contains a fictional story followed by a non-fiction section on the life cycle of palm trees, the ecosystem, and eye spy activities for the youngest readers.
Will appeal to readers who enjoy:
the science of ecosystems
In the beautifully illustrated series: Baby Palm - an Adventure in Growth; Little Palm - Growing with Animal Friends; and Young Palm - Storms to Rainbows, are three endearing books that follow the life of a baby royal palm tree who is born on a tropical island in the Caribbean and lives there with his father and grandmother.
Children are introduced to the fascinating stages of the palm tree's growth and at the same time to the concept of growing up and the challenges that come with this process. There is also terrific bonus content to be found at the end of each book. "For the infinitely curious polymath," the author has included fun facts and trivia related to the three separate stories. In addition, there is the "Eye Spy'' activity page and parents can challenge their young readers to search for letters of the alphabet, numbers, and all sorts of cleverly hidden creatures and objects on the preceding pages. Each picture book has a clear beginning, middle, and end and can be a stand-alone read, but to truly appreciate the beauty of the message of the series, and to learn more about the little palm tree's journey, reading all three is highly recommended.

As a preschool, K, and 1st grade teacher, I use the Baby Palm series in my classroom. The stories and vibrant illustrations are sweet and teach valuable lessons about sharing and helping. The stories foster a love and respect for nature, while the non-fiction section teaches the science. I recommend the books for families with siblings of different ages and for mixed-grade classrooms because each book has content that appeals at different levels.
