Nature All Around: Trees
Trees are all around us and come in many shapes and sizes. But what do youngsters really know about trees? This wonderful book gives more than an introduction to trees. It will give kids the opportunity to learn a great deal about trees—the different kinds, the life cycle, what happens to trees during each season of the year, where different kinds of trees live, and much more. The writing by author Pamela Hickman is lively and fun while disseminating real scientific information in terms interesting enough for children grades two through six to read independently. Kids, and the rest of us lucky enough to read this beautiful book, will learn about the different parts of the tree and what jobs they have, the different layers in bark and what each layer does, and how to grow a tree from a seed and keep it safe while it grows. There is so much to learn, and this book will make every bit of it fun. Illustrator Carolyn Gavin’s detailed illustrations are correct, accessible, and will leave youngsters feeling they can make their own tree journals. Do not miss this book.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
