“Grow slow, grow strong.”
This engaging picture book offers an excellent explanation of trees’ inter-dependence and all of the benefits that we humans get from trees.
We discover how trees naturally grow slow and strong, communicate with and depend on each other and provide the oxygen that we need to live. The simple (digitally-created) art supports the text with clever images – our respiratory system sure does resemble tree branches. Some illustrations include cute anthropomorphization of trees and leaves but overall support the facts and concepts presented.
Kids ages 4-10 will enjoy this book; the arboreal puns and jokes will surely draw smiles from supportive grown-up readers: “If you’re not into trees or slightly silly jokes, I wood leaf now” warns the title page.
