What sort of tree did Robin Hood's bow come from? What pine tree drops its needles in the winter and how did the monkey puzzle get its name? These are just some of the wonderful facts that you'll discover inside this book. Trees give us shade and the oxygen we breathe, like tall green giants that watch over us. And they are beautiful! Use the delicate illustrations and simple text to help your child identify the trees they see every day, whether they live in the country or the city. This book is a wonderful way of encouraging a child to interact with their environment, helping them to respect and protect the trees that surround them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Voake, whose charming drawings have a touch of Edward Ardizzone about them, has written a marvellous book about how to grow, measure and identify trees" -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
"The watercolour illustrations are mini works of art . . . Pure delight, we loved it! Highly recommended!" * Hot Brands Cool Places *
"It would make an excellent gift for a child (or an incompletely educated adult like me) and is a must-have resource for all environmentally aware schools" * School Librarian *
"An attractively illustrated introduction to this subject, combining instructions and ideas for getting to know trees better, in which watercolour illustrations capture the form and beauty of each variety. The trees are well chosen - even the most urban of children won't have to look far to find a tree that they can look up at." * Junior Education Plus *

“A bit disappointing”

The illustrations are rather pale imitations of Quentin Blake's style and don't convey the form or appearance of the trees very well. As mini field guide for children it verges on useless, though with some... More
