Full Description

This book provides basic knowledge about both the vital functions of trees in a larger context, as well as, the structural characteristics of their many parts. Children will discover how trees are born, eat, drink, breathe and sleep; how they defend themselves; how they sometimes attack; how they reproduce; and even, in some incredible cases, how they move! Young readers will also be invited to reflect on how trees and humans can coexist.
