Note: 
In a very simply written story tinged with sadness, Noah is portrayed as a steward of the earth who plants and tends trees until they grow into a huge forest. He intends to give the trees to his sons but God has other plans and obedient Noah must use his trees to make an ark. After the ark is finished and the animals have boarded, Noah carries in little green saplings from the trees he loved the most. The full page illustrations are impressionistic and child-like. With an environmental theme, this is a good choice for Tu B'Shevat.
