When a family wants to cut down a tree to build a house, what happens to the animals' nests and burrows? Can a tree be home to everyone?

For the rabbits, birds, and squirrels, the big tree is home. But then come two new arrivals with wonderful plans, all ready to create their dream house. What will it mean for the animal families if their tree is cut down? With empathy and imagination, Neal Layton offers a hopeful outlook in this simple and powerful fable about the harmony of the natural world.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Land for Sale reads a sign beside a tall, spindly-looking fir tree standing in the countryside. A bird family and a squirrel family nest in its branches. Owls shelter in a hollowed-out section of the trunk, while beneath the ground lies a rabbit family's burrow. A cheerful couple arrives with plans for a grand house, but when they start sawing the tree, the nests tumble to the ground. Stricken, they reconsider and then begin repairing and improving their new neighbors' abodes. For themselves, they build a modest tree house, a happy home. This story of compassion is told with brevity and illustrated with finesse. Deftly drawn in pen and brightened with watercolor washes, the illustrations zoom in for close-ups of the animals' homes and then pull out to show a broader view of the setting. With just a few words in large type on each double-page spread, the spare text leaves plenty of room for kids to observe, imagine, and talk about what's happening in each scene. This appealing picture book is just right for reading aloud.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"
