it's so easy to take trees for granted, but this book really encourages children to take a closer look at trees and highlights their importance to us ... beautifully illustrated with colour photos and diagrams -- I like the fact that there are lots of small photos included in the questions for children: these will help them identify trees as well as appreciate their beauty. A great way to encourage children to appreciate nature.
