Summary
This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated introduction to trees and the important role they play is part of the essential Nature All Around series. The book first explores the parts of trees, their life cycles, the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees, leaf types and the processes of photosynthesis and respiration. Then it takes readers through a year in the life cycle of trees, describing what happens during each of the four seasons. Readers will discover the many ways trees are vital to the environment and how various animals can share one tree as a home. A two-page spread contains a map of forest regions across the United States and Canada. And there's even a section for "budding" tree-watchers, with fun questions to help identify trees in their neighborhoods.



Combine bestselling author Pamela Hickman's child-friendly, informative text with Carolyn Gavin's whimsical, painterly illustrations and you get both a complete reference tool and a book that children will be drawn to for its enticing visual appeal. This book has strong curriculum applications in grades two through five, when children are learning about the characteristics of living things. It works specifically for life science lessons on the growth and changes in plants, and on the interdependence of living things. End matter includes information about endangered trees and how readers can help, as well as an activity, glossary, and index.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Whimsical watercolor illustrations complete a field-guide-style book that documents trees across North America. The opening pages go micro, exploring the roots, branches, bark, seeds, and leaves that make up a tree; illustrations show the differences between deciduous and evergreen trees, document different types of leaves, and chart the growth of a tree from seed to sapling. Subsequent spreads examine how trees change throughout the seasons, examining how each season is essential for growth and health. Ending segments map the different types of forest regions in North America, document some of the animals that make their homes in trees, and highlight strange or unusual trees. For readers interested in a more hands-on approach, an activity section provides instructions on how to plant and care for a new tree, while a page on endangered trees offers steps to take toward protecting trees. The layered watercolors spot art and full-page illustrations are bright and eye-catching, providing both a clearly informative and picturesque look into the complex world of trees.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Watercolor and gouache illustrations with a light-handed contemporary sensibility enliven a straightforward and comprehensive introduction to U.S. and Canadian trees. Essentials such as tree structure, the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees, leaf morphology, and how trees breathe, eat, and pollinate are all explained in direct, accessible text. Seasonally themed spreads cover why leaves fall and how maple syrup is made, while others illuminate interesting tree behaviors, such as the fact that cold nights might actually cause trees to crack with a bang. Varied text formats-sidebars, lists, and asides-make it easy to absorb all this information, and sections on beginner tree watching, forest regions, and strange trees (among them the manchineel and its "death apples") offer alternate pathways to engage attention. A glossary and index conclude this thoughtfully presented resource. Ages 7-10. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
