In an exuberant text accompanied by gorgeous, windswept illustrations, two esteemed picture-book creators celebrate the mighty tree.

Journey through the seasons and discover how much there is to love about trees! From brand-new buds in spring to the sound of the wind whooshing through the leaves in summer, from the fall colors to the feel of winter’s rough bark and the promise of spring returning again — no matter what time of year, there’s always something extraordinary to notice about the trees around your neighborhood. Chris Butterworth’s text, gently sprinkled with facts, captures the wonder of a child as Charlotte Voake’s busy, buoyant artwork conveys how something as simple and common as a tree can feel like magic taking root around you.

The Things That I LOVE about TREES is a non-fiction book about the cycle of trees through the seasons starting with Spring when the trees are just getting their new buds and starting to grow after the winter. The book follows the trees through Summer and their thick leaves shading the grown below, to Autumn and the leaves turning a rich brown colour and into winter when they lose their leave. Amongst the reasons why a little girl loves the trees, there is also factual information about the life of trees too. The book is quick to read and contains lots of factual information including a section at the back for parents and teachers too which will come in handy. The illustrations are full-page but I can’t say that I like them very much, they are too blurry and not colourful enough. At times there is a mention of a plum tree but there is no plum colour, in my experience bright colourful illustrations attract children to the pages better. Perhaps with this being a non-fiction book the illustrator decided to tone the colours down, I’m not sure. The information is interesting and there is a section at the back for how children can play using the trees, making the book interactive. A nice read that would work best, in my opinion, as a class read.
