The things that I love about trees by Chris Butterworth

Ill. by Charlotte Voake. Walker Books, 2018. ISBN 9781406349405
(Age: 5+) Recommended. This book looks at the seasons of the year and how trees change with the different seasons.
This book is a combination of story and some facts, which are written in the book in a way that makes them seem part of the story.
At the end of the book there is a page of ideas of activities you could do with trees like building a den, collecting things that come from trees to compare, make a picture using leaves, or sticks, see what animals you can find living in the tree and the most fun of all climbing.
This book could be used for science looking at either living things or seasons.
It includes an index at the end of the book.
I recommend this book for 5+
