Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers will climb through the pages of this vivid photographic book to explore the parts of a tree--and understand their functions. In summer, the tree sunbathes and seethes with animal life. With autumn comes the flowing sap that makes maple syrup for pancakes. As the tree's leaves begin to fall, winter is coming on and the tree is nearly dormant. Spectacular photographs and fun, informative text not only answer questions about how trees work and why seasons change but also make this book an invitation to observe and enjoy nature and its many wonders.

Synopsis:

This eye-catching, large format, photographic picture book will delight beginning readers. All the vocabulary, language, and concepts in this carefully researched, 16-page book is geared to young children so that they can practice their reading skills as they discover, explore, and learn.
