Did you know that a tree is the biggest plant that grows? They can live for a VERY long time and are alive all year round – even in the dead of winter. In the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, this re-illustrated book by Clyde Robert Bulla (who originally wrote the book in 1960) on the science of trees is well designed for preschool and early-primary-grade children. The text follows an apple plant from seed to sprout to tree, including the development of blossoms, leaves, and fruit.
Stacey Schuett adds new lush, accurate illustrations that follow a tree’s continuous life cycle through spring, summer, winter, and fall. It’s a wonderful book for early science as it explains the functions of a tree’s roots, trunk, branches, and leaves. The back of the book also talks about how to estimate the age of a tree by using a tape measure and offers information on a simple project and more books kids can read to learn about trees. This is a fantastic book for preschool and kindergartners and is a wonderful starting point for understanding trees
Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Series: This is a Stage 1 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explains simple science concepts for preschoolers and kindergartners.
