Nothing Here But Trees by Van Leeuwen

Nothing Here But Trees

By Jean Van Leeuwen
Picture Books

I love the author Jean Van Leeuwen. In this gentle book, she paints a picture of a loving pioneer family and their struggle to create a new home in the untamed wilderness of Ohio. The illustrations are great. There is not a fast-moving or exciting plot, but the book is full of interesting information and high values.
