Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Burns book contains brief, introductory information for fifteen American trees, including the lifespan and uses of the wood. A color drawing of the mature tree and a close-up of the leaf help to further identify the tree. Descriptions and illustrations are also given for the seeds and the detail of the bark. There are environmental and safety tips at the bottom of each two-page spread. Some are simply common sense, such as "watch where you step" while others offer tips that readers may not have thought of, such as "Don't put your hand into a hole or crack in the tree. It may be an animal's home". In clear and simple terms, readers can also learn how to make a bark-rubbing poster, a leaf mobile and how to grow a tree from seed. This is part of the "Young Naturalist Field Guides" series. It was originally part of the "Take-along guide" series published by NorthWord Press. The bibliography includes books, videos and web sites. An index has been added, but most students will be accessing information by type of tree, and therefore the table of contents is more useful. 1998 (orig.
