Review

With spring here at last, teachers once again have the opportunity to explore the outdoors with their class and get close to nature.

This book forms an ideal companion for this kind of learning, both inside and outside the classroom.

The Little Book of Trees is packed with information on more than 40 of the most common trees found in Britain and Europe, with inspiring photography demonstrating the characteristics of each species along with key facts.

There are galleries and guides to bark, seeds and leaves, as well as the wildflowers that live in tandem with the trees.

Children from the age of six can discover facts such as when different fruit trees will yield a crop – and which you can eat.

They can also use the leaf gallery to identify the species of tree growing around them in and outside the school.

Suitable for all year round – not just spring.
