What a wonderful way to learn about trees! Gorgeous illustrations throughout. Children and adults can learn from the easy to understand facts that are told in a rhyming story format. The real pictures of the trees and the “Why We Love Trees” featured at the end of the book are very informative and encourage children to expand their knowledge and continue learning about trees. I especially liked how a resource was provided to help readers learn how to plant their own tree. I would definitely recommend this book for children!

This is a wonderful book that children will enjoy reading and looking at, but which is also so informative. We take a walk with a young boy, his dad and dog as they visit different trees and learn how to identify them. The facts about each tree are in rhyme and its easy to imagine these becoming long remembered bits of wisdom. Beautiful poetry and beautiful artwork to match bring this book alive. There is also information at the back of the book about various trees including a photographic guide and links to explore further. This is a book to revisit over and over and to instil a love of trees in children.
