Be Thankful for Trees: A Tribute to the Many & Surprising Ways Trees Relate to Our Lives (Hardcover)
What gives you a seat, a floor for your feet?
A place you can sit with your family to eat?
The pum-pum of a drum, a guitar's twangy strum . . .
Tree wood makes music zing, ping, and hum.
Using lilting, rhyming couplets, this book explores the many items that are made from trees. But it doesn't stop there Kids will also learn about the many uses of live trees - and the environmental danger to trees posed by forest fires, floods, and deforestation. Kids are encouraged to be kind, not only to one another, but to the environment as well.
Kids will view their backyards and parks in a whole new light after going on an arboreal eco-tour in this gorgeous paean to trees.
