Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
"But what is special about a tree?" poses the author. The vibrant full-color photographs used to illustrate this introductory and easy to understand book will entice children to explore trees. Tree shapes, types of leaves, how trees are fed, why they are green, what animals they house, and the bounty trees produce are all captured in the text and photographs. Part of the "Walkabout" series developed to help children understand environmental issues and to stimulate discussion.
