Synopsis

The Wonder of Trees Nature Activities for Children by Andrea Frommherz, Edith Biedermann

Trees are impressive beings. Their secrets, magic and wisdom have always fascinated people. This colourful book tells us many of the mysteries of trees, such as which tree gives us strength; which leaves and blossoms can be made into soothing ointments and delicious teas; and which tree can be entrusted with our secrets. Children are encouraged to use all their senses in getting to know thirteen common trees. Activities include stories, songs, games and craft ideas, as well as traditional rituals associated with trees; simple recipes for food and the medicine cabinet; and fun skills to learn from different trees. This richly illustrated, practical book is perfect for use in school and at home, with activities for all the family to enjoy.

Reviews

'This is a fascinating book with beautiful illustrations as well as photographs. Althought the activities are designed for children, I think The Wonder of Trees can be an inspiration for everyone to reconnect with the deeper magic of trees.' --Juno'
