When I was a little girl there were only a few books that I drug around with me to stare at the pictures. This will be that book for your child. In fact, this encyclopedic book answers your questions with a light, witty touch and is great for all ages, child and adults alike.
As a environmental studies major and lover of trees, this book is amazing. It is part botany, part history, and part cultural anthropology. This amazing and beautiful book goes beyond the basics giving readers everything they might want to know and more about a particular branch of the plant kingdom as well as exploring the important roles that trees have played in our ecosystem throughout history. Trees take an up-close-and-personal look at the roots all the way to the tips of their branches and leaves.
