About the Book



Mouse twins befriend a tree and watch it grow and change throughout each month of the year.



Book Synopsis



A charming exploration of the seasons with some of Caldecott-winner Leo Lionni's beloved mice.

In January, two mice, Willie and Winnie, make a new friend: a tree. The tree tells them her name is Woody, and the mice promise to visit her all year round. As the months tick by, Willie and Winnie watch Woody soak up the rain, bloom buds into flowers and leaves, and bear fruit. By the end of the year, Willie and Winnie know they've made a forever friend who has taught them all about the seasons.

Originally published in 1992, this board book classic from Caldecott Award winner Leo Lionni is the perfect read year-round.
