by Cécile Benoist, Illustrated by Charlotte Gastaut
This visually stunning book is an exploration of unique trees--from the tallest Sequoia in California, to a very special forest in India, to a lone Acacia in the Sahara desert--offering a window into different cultures around the world.
Spectacular art enhances twenty fascinating stories about unique species, traditions, and the people who both nurture and destroy different trees from every corner of the world. This beautiful book improbably tells the story of women's equality in India; endangered species in the Seychelle Islands; and the green belt movement in Kenya--among other true tales of the tallest, broadest, most interesting, significant trees on every continent.
This is the perfect book of bedtime stories for nature lovers.
Target age: 4 to 8
