Trees shelter and surround us. Their leaves offer shade from the hot summer sun. In autumn, they dazzle us with color. In winter, they stand tall against a cold and snowy background. Trees may look solitary, but each one is teeming with life.
Tell Me, Tree is a guide to the wide variety of trees that surround us. It describes different kinds of trees and how to identify them, and presents the many parts of a tree, inside and out, with cut-away illustrations and labels. The book also includes an explanation of photosynthesis, and a special section on how to make a tree identification book of your own.
