Pando: A Living Wonder of Trees

Pando is an inspiring tribute to a Utah grove of quaking Aspen trees connected by their roots to form one of the world's oldest and largest living things. Author Kate Allen Fox engages readers’ senses to help convey the vastness of Pando, the challenges it faces, and how we all can be part of the solution. With lyrical poetry, Fox summarizes the science, action, and compassion needed to save this wonder of nature.

Horn Book Guide - Kitty Flynn

"The spare free-verse text introduces readers to this natural wonder, estimated to be twelve thousand years old. Fox effectively provides context for the massive numbers (e.g. Pando's size and age) to aid in comprehension. Particular attention is paid to how human behavior has changed Pando's environment and is threatening the organism's survival. Matching the text's reverence, Tran's delicately rendered illustrations glow with rich browns, golds, and greens." - Horn Book Guide

School Library Journal - Mary Lanni, formerly at Denver P.L.

"STARRED REVIEW! This educational picture book is presented in lyrical poetry, connecting readers to the beauty of the natural world through visual and auditory means. The primary text appears in short lines with ample white space and is balanced with elegant and vibrant illustrations. Additionally, the book includes small asides that provide insight into more of the science behind the story and complement the flowery language. . . . This is an important story that will inspire young readers to learn more about the environment and their role within it." - School Library Journal
