Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you have ever lovingly walked through a forest, you can appreciate the beauty of trees. In the spring their new growth is an augury of rebirth. During summer, trees stand out in their lush greenery and provide cooling shade. Fall brings out their brilliant colors as the leaves adopt their autumnal hues. In winter, trees remain silently steadfast, many looking like skeletal sentries. This book offers the public a comprehensive, guidebook to the trees of the world. Sections of this captivating and beautiful book are dedicated to the major tree families and to ways they can be identified. Every tree described is accompanied by a photograph and information detailing its growth, and native habitat. Numerous color photographs are included, many of which are visually stunning. This is a wonderful book that affords its readers both valuable information and a visual treat. If you love trees, or merely are interested in reading about them, this is a must have book. 2005, DK Publishing, Ages 14 up.
