In this updated and revised edition of Tree, readers can follow a seed grow into a sapling, the changing colors of fall leaves, and the tiny insects that live in rotting leaves on the forest floor, plus learn why deciduous trees lose their leaves in the fall, how a tree breathes, how bark defends trees from attack by animals, and more.
Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: Vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.

I recall being a child and loving these books because of the cool pictures and photographs. As an adult I realize how hard it would be for a young child to read them. The font is real small and spread out in many places on the pages. I give this book a two out of five for its non read-ability for children. I do like the big detailed pictures still; maybe I could put these DK Eyewitness books in the same place where I put the field guides, since they often have the same reading issues.
