Take Along: Trees, Leaves and Bark; Burns, Diane
The popular Take-Along Guide series introduces children to “reading” who lives in a given environment by looking for clues.
In addition to offering full descriptions of common North American trees, this book discusses tree life-span, common uses, anatomy, identification, and seed dispersal. Discover trees that produce sticky gum for bees, trees whose bark peels off like puzzle pieces, and trees used by Native Americans for pain relief.
Children ages 5 to 10 will enjoy the creative activities and helpful identifications found in this beautifully illustrated and inquiry-oriented guide.
