Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why should you be a friend to trees?

Trees are a valuable natural resource. People depend on trees for food, and animals depend on trees for food and shelter. But most important, we depend on trees because they add oxygen, a gas we all need, to the air. While trees give us many wonderful products, we must also protect them because we can't live without them.

Synopsis:

Everything that is made of paper and wood comes from trees, a valuable natural resource that adds oxygen to the air. This book explains how young conservationists can help protect trees and also incorporates other basic environmental concepts.
