We’re enjoying Gina Ingoglia’s The Tree Book for Kids and their Grown-ups. When it came, I was so excited I started reading it while the kids were asleep.
The first 30 pages are very readable text (in 2-page spreads) about different aspects of trees: bark, or photosynthesis, or fruit. Then the rest of the book is an encyclopedia of trees– simultaneously basic and comprehensive. I really like this book. Now I want one like this on shrubs. And wildflowers. And birds.
