A Tree Is a Plant
by Clyde Robert Bulla; illustrated by Stacey Schuett
This title in the "Let's Read and Find Out Science series is "a good starting place for understanding trees." (Booklist) Through the example of an apple tree, readers learn how a tree grows, how it is nourished from the sun and water, how water travels up from the root system, etc.
Stacy Schuett's charming paintings are a
perfect fit for the text and the fun suggested experiments make for great additions
to lessons on trees for kids.
