Breathtaking & stunning "field-guide" artwork "leaves" the reader in awe of the arboreal world of Trees! Fascinating tree facts abound, with many "Wow! I never knew that!" moments. Makes me want to go climb a tree again, like I'm 9-years old! (my boyhood passion....33 years ago!)

Very recommended for any & all would-be tree lovers!

Trees get bigger”. “Trees are like big plant.” “Trees are living things”. Those are some of the responses from my children when I asked –what do we know about trees? After reading the book my children learned more about Trees and how they grow. This is the subject of this clear, beautiful book.
This is an informational text but instead of photos the book includes skillful illustrations. The illustrations vary in size and color. Some are set off pieces of the page in defined panels and columns. T
