A Tree Is Nice is a perfect little book about all the wonderful things that trees can do for people, like keep us cool, protect us from storms, and give us something beautiful to look at. First published in 1956, this book's environmental theme was far ahead of its time. Help cultivate a love a nature in someone you know by getting them this book.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trees are beautiful. They fill up the sky. If you have a tree, you can climb up its trunk, roll in its leaves, or hang a swing from one of its limbs. Cows and babies can nap in the shade of a tree. Birds can make nests in the branches. A tree is good to have around. A tree is nice.

Synopsis:

A Tree Is Nice (PB)

This is an adorable story to show the importance of trees. The author shows the reader the many things that trees are able to provide. The theme is discovering the beauty of something, even if it is just a tree. Trees might be taken for granted, but it is important to see how great they really are!
