Forlagets beskrivelse
The book is well suited as an "icebreaker" for talking with young children about life and death in the family.
Read it on a tablet in landscape mode.

Extract from the book:
-----------------------------
On an autumn day it happened.

“It’s time ....
The stem can hold me no longer.
Farewell, my Oak-mother! “

And then it fell to the ground.
The shell took a hard blow, but it held.
Luckily the Oak-mother’s leaves were nearby, ready to cover the little Acorn at the slightest gust of wind.

But that day no wind stirred.
And so the little Acorn lay on the bare ground in the open for the whole day, under the crows cawing.
And throughout the night, dreading the sharp teeth of the squirrel.

The next morning the Acorn was still laying there when a man named Thompson found it on his way to school.

Thompson’s soft hands scooped up the little Acorn and put it in his pocket, along with a few Oak leaves.
 You see, Thompson was a biology teacher and he took the Acorn with him to class where he explained to his students the oddities of Oak trees.
He put the Acorn on display before the curious children, who fingered the hard shell and broke off small pieces of the Oak leaves.
Teacher Thompson pointed out the thin threads that once carried sun-made energy from leaves to roots, and water from roots to leaf.

“This little Acorn can live a 1000 years” Thompson said holding up the Acorn. “Or longer, if the conditions are good.
And a good life for an Oak tree is living among other Oaks because they need each other.
Their roots interlock and they help
protect each other, sharing nutrition and knowledge about the dangers nearby. That is why you rarely see Oaks alone. They don’t tolerate it well.”
When class was over Thompson
absentmindedly put the Acorn away in a drawer, where it lay forgotten the whole night and all the next day.

And for many, many days and many, many nights while the dry air sucked at the suppleness of the nut and slowly made the shell darker and denser.

“I can’t bear it any longer,”
the little Acorn thought.
“My nut’s wrinkled and dry and I’m about to crack”

------------------------

No worries, it ends well.
But the little Acorn goes through hard times.
