Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Hand youngest readers (and read aloud to even younger children) Patricia Lauber's Be a Friend to Trees. Ms. Lauber explains what trees are, how they benefit people and animals, and how, by recycling, we can reduce their destruction.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children who are learning to read can learn about their world with the "Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science" series. The series is well conceived such that the developmental reading and interest level are matched. Many outstanding nonfiction writers and illustrators are contributing to the series. Stage 2 for ages five to nine handles meatier issues with more complicated ideas and vocabulary than books for the first level. Lauber's Be a Friend to Trees details how trees provide homes for animals and food for human and animals. Trees also provide paper and wood for many products and help to prevent soil erosion. This title is also available in audio format.
