They provide us with shade, we eat many of their fruits and they’re fun to climb – that’s how we have come to know and love our trees. This book reveals what else these plants can do: how does a big, strong tree grow from a little seed? How do trees eat and drink? And what do trees have to do with our climate? Using flaps, children can take a look underneath the bark and discover tree species from all over the world – from the baobab tree to the cedar.
