This rhyming tale describes a busy day in a tree's life. From its roots to its branches and leaves, a variety of wildlife live in and around the tree making it their home.
What Trees Provide
Why I like this book:
The illustrations of this book are just amazing! They are done in oil paints and are just breath-taking and very representational of the animals in it. This book would do really well with young readers as it explains the ecosystem of a tree. The text is very simple and done in rhyme as it introduces young minds to the importance of trees and how they affect the lives of all the creatures who live in and around them.
