Focus on Trees
No Plant theme would be complete without discussing the importance of trees. Two books that I would recommend that nicely introduce the concept of the value of trees are:
1. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
2. The Growing Up Tree by Rosenberry
Both books lend themselves to discussion on the importance of trees. Click on the titles to read the book reviews.
