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.

As said by Publishers Weekly, “this expansive volume takes a holistic approach to the topic of trees in nature, history, and the imagination . . . Through the multiangled perspective, Socha and Grajkowski subtly allude to the way that branches of knowledge cross-pollinate and interconnect." The illustrations are stylized, eye-catching art worthy of framing and putting on your wall. I was drawn to the smallest of details in the drawings of this book as well as the high-quality nonfiction learning that Trees offers the reader. The oversized two-page spreads help readers identify and compare tree species and the animals that call them home.
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.

NOTE: I received a copy of this book from YA Books Central. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
