A Family of Trees: My First Book of Forests

A Family of Trees: My First Book of Forests

  • $ 16.95

In this first book of forests for the very young, children are invited to experience how trees, like humans, talk to each other, care for each other, share food, and create a home together. The book further unfolds to showcase a lush temperate forest-scape, creating a true visualization of how trees are connected and form forest families. Back panels offer vivid illustrations of diverse forests environments around the world for a more global context, while secondary text offers more detailed, curricular information about tree science and the flora and fauna that rely on forest habitats.

This artful and heart-warming introduction to forests and the new science of tree communication has a stunning accordion-style board-book format. Housed in a gift case with a magnetic closure, it opens up to create a forest-scape that is 2.47 metres or over eight-feet long – both a book to treasure and a beautiful, fold-out shelf display of a forest-scape, perfect for any child’s room.

Ages 2-4
