The Lovereading4Kids comment

‘Trees are marvellous beings’ concludes the text of this beautifully illustrated and heart-warming picture book, and the reader will certainly agree. Each gorgeous double page tells us a fact about trees and in a way that makes us see them as our friends: ‘Trees have their head in the clouds and their feet on the ground … Trees provide homes to many and shade for all.’ The illustrations, textured mixed media, are stunning, the trees stylised but realistic, and this book reminds us both of how important trees are to our world, and of their beauty. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Trees by Lemniscates

Trees change through the seasons - springing to life, bearing fruit and losing their leaves. They clean the air we breathe, provide seeds and homes for creatures and extend their shade to everyone equally. Trees is a poetic picture book that invites the reader to take a closer look at the magnificent trees that surround us.

Reviews

The colourful mixed-media illustrations are a charming, collage like blend of textures, simplistic shapes, and intricate patterns, and a ubiquitous small bird lends a playful touch...this eloquent, affectionate portrayal will invite awareness and appreciation of ways trees enhance and impact life. * Israel Book Review * A lyrical picture book with gorgeous illustrations that pays tribute to the beauty and importance of the trees all around us. [...] Trees is a poetic picture book [...] A lyrical celebration of nature. * Gift Focus *
