Cynthia (pandoraphoebesmom) | 1378 comments 10.1 - Books Really Do Grow On Trees
In honor of Arbor Day(called different things in different countries), which is celebrated in many countries (Belgium, China, Germany, Japan, Kenya, Lesotho, Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, Uganda, United States, and Venezuela) in the spring and the fact that without trees we wouldn't have books...Read a book with a picture of a tree(s) on the cover or the word tree/trees (not a type of tree) in the title.

If you need suggestions OR have suggestions for books to read for this task post them here.

As long as you can see a tree and know that's what it is it's fine.

It's not clearly identifiable as a tree so I'm going to say no.

No matter what the cover looks like it counts -- it has the word "Tree" in the title

Jennifer Jensen (Literally Jen) (vampsita) What about:

I'm not sure if what is on the front cover is considered a bush or a plant rather than a tree...however, on the back cover, there are definitely trees.

message 35: by Wallace (new)

Wallace So, does there have to be a tree on the particular version that you are reading, or just on one of the editions? (ie my copy of The Poisonwood Bible does not have a tree on the cover, but another edition does).

It should be the edition you read.

Wallace ok, thanks

I just realized there are trees on the cover of Under the Dome by Stephen King for anyone who's interested.

Stephanie Would this work for a tree on the cover?

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly

That is a great book, and I think it should count. Of course, I'm not the official on this one.
