As you can guess from the title, this collection of poems is all about trees--from the seed to the tip top height and everything in between.

What I thought: I've only read one other collection by Florian (Mammalabilia) and I didn't like Poetrees as much. The subject will interest readers in other nonfiction books about trees. I love the illustrations. Again, I think Florian gives his illustrations child appeal. My favorite poems are "Oak," "Monkey Puzzle Tree," and "Dragon Tree." My favorite illustration is "Dragon Tree." The "Glossatree" will whet readers' appetites for more tree facts.
