I got this book because it was a good price and it is fun to look up the trees located in my area and around the neighborhood. This guide is small and handy too so it's easy to bring along anywhere. I've been walking all over my town and using it to name off trees everywhere. My 7 year old cousin also loved this guide and it was even easy for her to use because of the detailed pictures. I would certainty recommend this field guide, and I'll most likely check out the other field guides by "Peterson First Guides" as I noticed the have one on Bugs & Insects too.
it is a book with very little information - just a piece of decoration with no real hard facts. even beginners should give it the skip.
